Community Health Worker Supervisor Trainer’s Manual

The CHW Supervisor Trainer’s Manual is used by the CHW Supervisor Training Facilitator during initial or refresher training for CHW direct supervisors. The Supervisor Trainer’s Manual includes lessons, activities, case studies, and post-lesson assessments. The CHW supervisor operational tools can be used by supervisors during observational visits (accompanying CHWs during service provision) or spot checks (assessing quality of CHW work through interviews with clients). These tools are listed as an appendix to the Supervisor Trainer’s Manual.
