Workforce Development

Hawai‘i Community Health Worker Association

Community health workers are frontline, trained and trusted individuals of the community who have deep connections and understandings of the community being served. ​​Since 2017, through funding from the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health, HIPHI has supported the CHW Association to secure and provide training and resources, and is helping CHWs build a grassroots association. HIPHI currently coordinates and facilitates monthly CHW calls and has partnered with the Department of Health on two CHW conferences, strategic planning sessions, and five regional meetings. HIPHI also convenes the CHW allies on a regular basis. The allies are made up of organizations committed to supporting CHWs through trainings and resources.
