The Forum for the Future's ‘Future Center’ is hosting a Live Research platform where those interested in shaping the future of community health can share thoughts, insights and perspectives on how we can use learnings from COVID-19 to reshape our health systems to be more proactive, responsive, equitable, and community-centered.
For too long, discussions about CHWs have been happening without CHWs. It’s time for a change.

The course is available free of charge on the Stanford Digital Medic app and can be downloaded for use offline.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to prioritize mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) for the well-being of children and their families, as well as the frontline workforce who serve them. Learn more about the work that Save the Children is doing in partnership with Johnson & Johnson Foundation to provide high quality MHPSS interventions, and share the article with your networks.
Nurses of color have long-shaped the nursing profession and transformed healthcare, but their stories are underrepresented in the broader nursing narrative. A new nurse-led project, “Nurses You Should Know,” is using storytelling to help close the representation gap.
Down to their core, nurses carry an intuition for patient needs that helps them adapt to new problems every day. It’s why nursing is both an art and a science, and why nurse innovators are the spark behind some of the most vital solutions in modern medicine.
Access to quality care is fundamental—and wouldn't be possible without the hard work of frontline health workers. Show your support for those on the front lines of COVID-19 response in low and middle income countries.
