There is limited information on CHWs in Minnesota and across the U.S. to help policymakers and employers meet the needs of the CHWs and the populations they serve. Therefore, WellShare International, including the Minnesota Community Health Worker Peer Network, in association with the Minnesota Community Health Worker Alliance, conducted this survey from November 2013 to January 2014. The survey was designed to explore the characteristics of the CHW profession in Minnesota, identify areas of greatest need, and discern how best to support CHWs in Minnesota through education, training, policy and advocacy.
