Asha Community Health Volunteers provide medications to the sick in the slums

”Hundreds of sick patients finally get medications through Asha’s Community Health Volunteers. Expectant mothers, postnatal mothers and newborns are given special attention. Our CHV’s are well trained and seasoned through having provided primary care to our communities for years and years. They are sincere, compassionate, and provide good quality care at no cost. They are saving the sick from getting expensive and often dangerous treatment from quacks and local healers. The public hospitals and primary care centres are mostly closed. If we don’t begin giving routine immunizations soon, there will be a resurgence of measles, serious forms of childhood tuberculosis, poliomyelitis, Hepatitis B and many other life-threatening illnesses. Our clinics can open only when public transportation is resumed.”- Dr Kiran
