Community Health Workers (CHWs) are the interface between the community and healthcare services. South Africa adopted the Ward Based Primary Health Care Outreach Team (WBPHCOT) Strategy in 2011. A five-year Policy Framework and Strategy for WBPHCOT was established in 2018 promoting community participation and empowerment, and inter-sectoral collaboration.

However, implementation is constrained, and there is a call for CHW programs to be regarded as a fully-fledged sub-system of the primary health care and district health system, rather than just human resources. The objective of this radio series is to amplify voices of CHWs to inform communities of their scope of practice and their role as the entry point to healthcare services.
