·        One of the biggest issues facing rural health services is lack of information. ASHA workers were put in charge of quarantining people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

·        Channels of communication between the government and the rural population need to be robust.

·        A deadly pandemic makes the value of these channels obvious but in order to get people on board, information needs to be sent out much more effectively and in a hands-on manner.

·        Medical facilities are understaffed and lack adequate equipment for various basic procedures like deliveries.

·        ASHA workers should have a fixed income, giving us stability in a job where we spend between eight to twelve hours daily.

·        For people in our village, ASHA have become lifeline who led innumerable immunisation drives and are everybody’s first call in a medical emergency.

·        Recognition, like being named a “Guardian of the Year” by Time magazine in 2020 has given me some leverage to circumvent the system and seek funds for people in my community.

·        Giving us due recognition would serve this end, along with making rural India’s needs medical or otherwise a priority.
