CHW TOOLKITs

Toolkit Overview

To assist organizations in implementing a sustainable CHW program, the CHWSD has partnered with Emory University to develop two CHW Toolkits.

One toolkit, the South Dakota Community Health Worker Planning and Assessment Toolkit was developed to be South Dakota-specific and assist medical and clinical based organizations in developing a sustainable CHW program. To obtain CEUs for completion of this toolkit, please access the CEU Version.

The Community-Based Organization Planning Toolkit was developed to provide a comprehensive overview regarding how a community-based organization can develop and integrate a sustainable CHW program.

Feel free to access this toolkit as many times as needed.
This version of the toolkit offers CEUs for healthcare professionals and other professionals who complete the toolkit.

This toolkit is designed to share how Community Health Workers (CHWs) can support Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) and demonstrate the value of CHWs to the communities they serve. CHWs in a community-based setting advance the health equity of the community: serving clients and meeting the needs of individuals while helping their organization fulfill its mission.
