Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) are finding it difficult to upload data related to villagers’ health on ‘ASHA Survekshan’ app as this government portal is not working smoothly.

ASHA workers, a part of field level teams of the local administration constituted to screen people of rural areas to contain the spread of Covid, have to upload data on this government portal everyday without fail.

Haryana Villagers General Health Checkup Scheme (HVGHCS) had been launched in 20 villages of this district on May 15 to contain the spread of Covid. Under this scheme, the screening of villagers has now started in 52 villages.

Under the Haryana Villagers General Health Checkup Scheme, the local administration has formed two types of teams — headquarter level and field level teams — for every village.

The field level teams have been given a pro forma for asking queries about general health condition of the persons at home. After screening, the task of uploading data of villagers’ health on ASHA Survekshan app has been entrusted to ASHA workers.

With the help of smartphones given to them by the Health Department, they upload the data soon after completion of screening work of a family, but most of the times, they can’t do this work at that time as the site either remains slow or non-functional.

Rekha Bakana, president, ASHA Workers Union, Radaur block, said, “After screening of villagers, we have been asked to upload data related to their health on ASHA Survekshan mobile app. But at most times, this portal is either slow or non-functional.”

She said that after conducting the survey, ASHA workers were forced to upload the data till late in the evening.

Neeru Bala, district president of ASHA Workers Union, said that the government should solve this problem immediately.

Dr Vijay Dahiya, Civil Surgeon, Yamunanagar district, said that the problem being faced by ASHA workers in uploading data had come to his notice.

“We have informed our higher authorities of the Health Department and requested them to solve this portal-related problem soon,” said Dr Vijay Dahiya.
