A new series of reports aims to paint a more complete picture of the community health worker/ promoter workforce in California, as well as challenges and opportunities related to training and employment. Reports will be released during the fall of 2022 and winter of 2023.
Despite being a critical part of California’s health workforce, there is relatively little comprehensive data on community health workers and promotores (CHW/Ps) in California. With funding from CHCF, Healthforce Center at UCSF fielded surveys of CHW/Ps, the institutions that train them, and the organizations that employ them.
The survey data will be published in a series of four reports between fall 2022 and winter 2023. Together they will paint a more complete picture of the current CHW/P workforce as well as challenges and opportunities related to training and employment. This can inform policy decisions as the state looks to support and expand this important workforce.
