Supervision of community health workers– known as Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) in Kenya - contributes to good performance, motivation and retention in community health service delivery. Responsibility for delivering community health services is a responsibility of 47 semi-autonomous county governments. Inadequate supervision may be due to capacity gaps and lack of supervision tools. REACHOUT in Kenya designed an intervention to train supervisors of CHVs on supportive supervision and provided supervision checklists.
