The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (NDPBH) implemented the CHW Program in late 2012. Since the program started, the CHWs have been particularly effective in reaching minority populations, specifically the Latino population and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations in resource-poor neighborhoods, where they help to address health disparities in both urban and rural settings.
