Community-based workers play an important role in the HIV response and evidence shows that they can be very effective in providing ART adherence support, retaining ART clients in care, contributing to HIV-related behavior change, and increasing coverage and uptake of HIV and non-HIV services among other things. Yet, there is great variation across countries and within countries in the roles community-based health workers play in the HIV response, suggesting that there are many opportunities for improving the efficiency and impact of HIV programs through increased engagement of community-based health workers in the specific tasks where they add the most value.
