Implementation Assessment of the Community Health Worker Program in Zambezia Province, Mozambique

This project is a study to assess the implementation of Mozambique's reinvigorated community health worker (CHW) program in the coastal province of Zambezia. This study will provide a "snapshot” of the CHW program at the current moment in time. It will shed light on the success and challenges of recent program activities, and provide vital information on how to improve or replicate the CHW program in coming years.
In partnership with Mozambique's National Institute of Health (INS), the Institute for International Programs (IIP) will carry out data collection in 6 of Zambezia's 22 districts. The study aims to asses (1) The location and utilization of CHWs (particularly in relation to population distribution); (2) The participation of CHWs in training, supervision, and other program activities, (3) The equipment and supplies (drug stocks) carried by CHWs and (3) The perspectives of CHWs on their role, motivation, and the successes/challenges they experience. Data collection will be carried out by local data collectors under a supervision team comprised of INS, Zambezia Research Institute, and IIP staff.
