Hello all,

I think the most important challenges are :

- the motivation of the CHWs, how to have them paid regularly? It is a political will.

- the education level of some of them, sometimes it is difficult to find someone able to read to ensure this function in the remote area, so the supervision and the managing tools are note well filled in, difficult to follow-up
