The Public Health Association’s Community Health Worker Association Section was created in January 2014 with the objective of giving Community Health Workers in Nebraska recognition for their work, giving them a voice that advocates for public health as well as their profession, providing avenues for further training and uniting all Community Health Workers across the state, and the entire nation.
Community Health Worker Policy Paper – April 2015
During 2014 a diverse group of representatives from several organizations and some Community Health Workers joined together to develop a more concise picture of the community health workforce in Nebraska, adopt core competencies for Community Health Workers, identify training and education needs, and develop a sustainability plan. The purpose of this document is to serve as a resource for the development of a sustainable Community Health Worker workforce in Nebraska and to provide policy recommendations for the State of Nebraska.
