Health Workers: A Lone Ray of Hope

The Global Health Workforce Alliance has been celebrating April 8-12 as World Health Worker Weeksince 2013 in an effort to recognize the invaluable services of health workers and increase awareness of the issues plaguing them.  Health workers are of paramount importance in developing countries, they’re at the forefront of healthcare and sometimes the only source of healthcare for the disadvantaged populace. In many countries, they endanger their lives to provide healthcare in high risk areas and are sometimes specifically targeted by militants.

In Pakistan, 76 lives have been lost in the fight against polio since December 2012, most of them Lady Health Workers (LHWs). Lady Health Workers have been tirelessly providing their vital services in Pakistan since the initiation of the “National Programme for Family Planning and Primary Health Care” in 1994. An LHW in Pakistan has the dual responsibility of providing primary health care and family planning education and promotion, but these services encompass innumerable activities: promotion and provision of immunization, provision of contraceptives, monitoring of various diseases such as TB and Dengue, awareness raising regarding proper nutrition and diseases, emergency relief and many more. <<Read More>>
