Abstract

This paper, presented as part of a workshop at the 2016 World Public Health Nutrition Conference, is one of a series of papers focused on ‘magic bullets’ versus community action for nutrition. This paper will describe the evidence base on the impact of CHW programmes for child health and discuss features of successful programmes. This is a timely issue as the World Health Organisation is currently leading a process to develop global guidance on community health worker programmes.
