The FCHV Program in Nepal was initiated in 1988/89 with the goal of supporting national health through community involvement. Currently there are 52,000 FCHVs with varying roles and responsibilities related to health. This presentation discusses the 2014 survey aimed at understanding FCHVs perceptions of their work, as well as the communities’ perceptions of FCHVs. Using a mixed methods strategy, researchers conducted a cross-sectional assessment of 13 domains in Nepal. Findings can be used to improve incentives for FCHVs as well as improve current programs and services in order to better serve the communities.
