MACHW is the statewide professional organization for community health workers (CHWs) from all disciplines. We were founded in March 2000 to enable CHWs to lead the movement to organize, define and strengthen the profession of community health work.
MACHW's mission is to
- Strengthen the professional identity of community health workers (CHWs)
- Foster leadership among CHWs; and
- Promote the integration of CHWs into the health care, public health and human service workforce.
