Unity 2014 addressed the role community health workers play in creating access to care, reducing care costs, and promoting healthy and happy communities. The conference stressed the importance of community health workers to the delivery of health and health reform; promoting social justice; shaping policy and practice; return on investment; and methods of overcoming barriers to CHW program success.
