Snapshot of Success - New Mexico
   The New Mexico Department of Health is beginning the first certification program for CHWs as a result of the passage and signing of Senate Bill 58 into law, the Community Health Workers Act. The Department's Office of Community Health Workers in partnership with CHWs, the Community Health Worker Advisory Council, Tribal CHR Programs, Navajo Nation CHR Outreach Program, and stakeholders, led the effort to establish infrastructure to initiate this voluntary certification for the estimated 800-900 CHWs in the state.
