The past two decades have seen unprecedented progress in fighting HIV, TB and malaria, although a further acceleration is required to achieve national and global goals. Progress has been uneven across regions, population groups and interventions. Achieving the ambitious goals of the Sustainable Development Agenda requires leveraging lessons learned and scientific progress, including efforts to scale up cost-effective approaches that reach key populations through wider primary health care (PHC) and health systems strengthening strategies, and ensuring adequate levels of domestic funding, complemented, where required, by development partner support. This evidence guide pulls together the existing guidelines and bodies of evidence, combined with recommendations from WHO experts, to provide a first-ever evidence base for national governments and their partners to design, implement and sustain effective and cost-effective HIV, TB and malaria CHW programmes. It is a useful guide for implementers. Click here to read the document.
