Community Health Workers in South Asia launch a new Charter of Demands

Through this initiative, we're uniting CHWs from India, Nepal, and Pakistan to address injustices and advocate for better working conditions.

CHWs, an all-women workforce, play a pivotal role in delivering healthcare services, especially in maternal, child, and reproductive health sectors. However, many are challenged by limited recognition, low pay, and poor working conditions. Often labelled as 'volunteers,' their crucial contributions during the pandemic have been overshadowed by gender biases and a shift towards privatising public services.
