A Community Health Worker (CHW) or a Home Health Worker (HHW) is a  public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an unusually close understanding of the community served. They may conduct assessments in health care settings, participants’ homes, and by phone. A health worker is critical in reducing health care costs, improving access to care, and advancing quality of care.

Below are a series of 9 videos brought to you by IHHA and IKE about the “8 Principles of  a Healthy Home”. As a home health worker, you may be entering the homes of your clients. It is important to make note of the condition the home is in. These videos will walk you through what exactly you should be looking for.
