A community health worker is a member of a community who is chosen by community members or organizations to provide basic health and medical care within their community, and is capable of providing preventive, promotional and rehabilitation care to that community.

This tag was used to map a facility where health care can be provided by a community health worker.

However, the tag amenity=health_post is much more common.
