Why frontline health workers?

Frontline health workers are those directly providing services where they are most needed, especially in remote and rural areas. They are the first and often only link to essential health services for millions in developing countries. Many are community health workers, nurses, midwives, local pharmacists, doctors working directly in communities. Properly trained and supported frontline health workers have the potential to save millions of lives.

The Collective Voice for Frontline Health Workers

The Frontline Health Workers Coalition (FHWC) advocates for urgent action to address the world’s most acute gaps in access to health workers. FHWC is an alliance of public and private United States-based organizations advocating for greater and more strategic investment in frontline health workers in low- and middle-income countries as a cost-effective way to save lives and foster a healthier, safer, and more prosperous world. We serve as both a technical support and watchdog function to the United States government and multilateral institutions, as well as a partner to advocates worldwide collectively striving to ensure every community has access to essential health services from trained and supported health workers.
