The Columbia Center for Community Health in collaboration with the Columbia Global Center, Mumbai hosted a learning collaborative “Training Community Health Workers After COVID-19” in Mumbai, India.

The goal of this learning collaborative was to:

  1. Present lessons from InTOuCH’s program in New York City
  2. Learn from successes and challenges from CHWs in India and
  3. Explore potential for partnerships

The workshop was attended by dignitaries from the Indian government, civil society and international aid organizations with an experience in developing, implementing and monitoring community-based programs with Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs).

We hope to build on this exploratory collaboration to develop more robust training and evaluation practices based on global models.
