The State government of telangana announced paid maternity leave for all Accredited Social health Activists (ASHA) employees on Monday, marking a significant step towards supporting these field-level healthcare workers who are the foundation of primary healthcare services and effective implementation of State-run public health initiatives.

At a review meeting on ASHA and auxiliary nurse midwives (ANMs) in telangana on Monday, state health minister T. harish rao made a decision about maternity leave. The health Minister recognized the vital role that ASHAs and ANMS play in providing high-quality healthcare to the populace at large.
