Policy Evidence Assessment Report: Community Health Worker Policy Components
Policy Evidence Assessment Reports summarize the evidence bases for components of chronic disease policy. Evidencebased policy can be used to prevent, control, and improve the outcomes of chronic disease, but the strength of the evidence for many components of policy is unknown. The Policy Evidence Assessment Reports are intended to inform researchers, evaluators, and practitioners about the strengths and limitations of the evidence bases for individual components of chronic disease policy interventions. These reports can be used during consideration of policy options to improve chronic disease outcomes, as well as to understand how enacted state laws incorporate evidence-based policy.
