This article explains how community health workers (CHWs) involved in CBPR projects support key CBPR ethics: community engagement, mutual learning, action-research, and commitment to sustainability. The authors present a case study in which CHWs were deployed at each phase of a 10-year CBPR project that translated an educational intervention in the research-to-practice-to- community continuum. The authors then discuss how the deployment of CHWs during this study supported the ethical conduct of research in the community.
