In this study, community health workers (CHWs), CHW supervisors, community representatives, and others in South Africa reported that services were comprehensive but that inadequate training, supervision, and mentoring as well as socio-economic issues impacted service effectiveness. A multidisciplinary approach to care has improved CHW knowledge and skills but more funding for training, supervision, supplies, and salaries is critical.
