Community health workers (CHWs) form part of South Africa’s ward-based-outreach team and constitute an integral part of primary health care (PHC) delivery. A study was done in Vhembe district, Limpopo, to determine factors influencing CHW motivation. Participants were 14 females aged 39–52 years, with educational levels ranging from no formal education to Grade 12, and varying work experience ranging from 5 to 12 years. Home-based workers were excluded from the study because they fall under the auspices of the Department of Social Development (DSD). All the necessary ethical and research standards were adhered to.
