At the heart of Primary Health Care (PHC) is the need to build the capacity of people and communities to constructively respond to their health needs. Common barriers to this objective include vulnerable and marginalized populations, resource constraints in health care, and determinants such as education, poverty, poor infrastructure, and lack of self-efficacy are.

An immediate constraint emerges in health systems that have inadequate investment in human resources to facilitate the required outreach processes.

During the 72nd World Health Assembly, the TaiwanICDF and World Vision will host a forum to discuss and affirm the unique opportunity Community Health Workers (CHWs) offer in realizing PHC; to advocate normative utilization of CHW guidance and tools; and to propose new roles for CHWs per the holistic requirement of universal health coverage.
