The session will be divided into three sections with a group discussion exploring possible criteria for evaluating CHW educational programs and curriculum resources. The discussion will be followed by a round table session when individuals can visit with individuals presenting their curriculum/training. The session will close with a review of criteria proposed by the group as well as discussion of education and training issues facing the field. As a part of this, the importance of a leadership role for CHWs as educators and evaluators of curriculum resources will be explored.
