The goal of the Network is to be a sustained, diverse, driving force for the CHW workforce in Arizona to improve access to health care, health outcomes, and quality of life for rural Arizonans. The utilization of CHWs is a well-documented evidence-based practice that can improve both healthcare access and health outcomes while also reducing cost. The goal of the Network is to address health concerns and disparities in rural Arizona by championing CHWs to work toward the triple aim: (1) improve population health, (2) improve patient care quality and satisfaction, and (3) reduce costs.
