Association of Community
MACHW is a statewide network of community health workers (CHWs) from all disciplines. We were founded in March 2000 to enable CHWs to lead the movement to organize, define and strengthen the profession of community health work.
MACHW achieves its mission through education, research, policy development and advocacy.
Who are Community Health Workers?
A community health worker is a public health professional who promotes full and equal access to necessary health and social services by applying his or her unique understanding of the experiences, language and culture of the communities he or she serves.
