IU Video Pulls Up Corrupt Health Workers

Sunita, our CC in Rajasthan enables women to get medication they are entitled to. Anganwadi centers aim at ensuring that the most vulnerable sections of Indian society, all over the country, get access to basic medicines. Thus, Anganwadi workers are in charge of distributing medicines and vaccinations to pregnant women, young mothers, and infants under the age of 6 years old. Unfortunately this ambitious scheme is often hindered by the lack of monitoring and the corruption of the workers. Cases of workers keeping the medicines or not distributing the vaccination cards regularly occur. This was the situation in Karauli district, ward n.7, before Sunita Kasera, our Community Correspondent in Rajasthan shot a video on the issue. In February 2011, shocked by the lot of women in Karauli, who were not receiving any of the provisions they are entitled to, Sunita decided to report their stories.  Despite local pressure, the women were bold enough to talk on camera, with the hope that Sunita would help them see some improvement in their lives.
