ASHA Workers of Bihar Demand Better Wages, Work Environment

 

ASHA Workers have been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. Apart from the regular duties of taking care of newborn child and their mother, regular vaccinations and surveys, ASHA workers from all over the country are doing extra duties for COVID-19 without any extra pay.

During the first wave, ASHAs would coordinate the quarantine period of those returning from cities. They would carry these surveys without any PPE kits or masks. Many ASHA workers have lost their lives in the COVID waves but the government has remained silent on bettering their work environment.

ASHAs have also faced a lot of discrimination and were accused of spreading COVID. Yet they continue to work and offer their services. It is high time that the government recognize the efforts put in by ASHA workers and reward them with better wages and the status of a regular government employee.
