Abstract: Iran's Community Health Worker (CHW) programme survived as an integral element of the health system during a period when many other nations’ CHW programmes collapsed and therefore warrants detailed analysis of the policies supporting the programme. We draw on a wide range of information about the Iranian programme and from this analysis draw important lessons on how to improve rural population health outcomes through Primary Health Care.
