India's one million all-women ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist Workers) workers were honoured with the WHO Director-General's Global Health Leaders' Award for their 'outstanding' contribution to advancing global health, demonstrated leadership and commitment to regional health issues.
ASHA (which means hope in Hindi) is a group of more than one million female volunteers in India. They were honoured for their crucial role in linking the community with the health system and ensuring those living in rural poverty access to primary health care services, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
ASHAs worked to provide maternal care and immunization for children against vaccine-preventable diseases, community health care, treatment for hypertension and tuberculosis, and core areas of health promotion for nutrition, sanitation, and healthy living, said WHO in its official statement.
