The Center for Human Services (CHS), URC's non-profit affiliate, facilitated the formation of 32 community-based quality improvement teams in the intervention zone to help improve health workers’ performance. The project’s operations research brief, "Can the Addition of a Quality Improvement Collaborative Improve Performance and Retention of Community Health Workers in Benin?" reports on the study’s methodology, results, and recommendations. The study found that community health workers who participated in the combined intervention were more likely to achieve a high performance score during the study period than those who received only financial incentives. In addition, community support and engagement was a key determinant of high community health worker performance.
