Honoring Health Workers Around the Globe

Community health workers are the foundation of the health system. World Health Worker Week is an opportunity to mobilize communities, partners, and policy makers in support of health workers in your community and around the world. Advancing Partners and Communities (APC) has been working to advance global leadership in community health, support policies and programs surrounding community health workers and ultimately improve health outcomes. Help us to honor the health workers around the globe that work every day to help improve the health system.
