Massachusetts Association of Community Health Workers
MACHW (pronounced "mah-chwah") is a statewide network of community health workers (CHWs) from all disciplines. We were founded in March 2000 to enable CHWs to lead the movement to organize, define and strengthen the profession of community health work.
Through advocacy, professional development and networking opportunities, the MACHW Network will: • Strengthen the field of community health work;
• Create a supportive, secure work environment; and
• Inform and unify diverse community health workers of all disciplines within Massachusetts.
