India’s National Rural Health Mission was launched in 2005, aiming is to provide every village in the country with a trained female community health activist Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA). ASHAs serve as a link between their own community and the public health system. As community health activists, ASHAs provide prevention education on a range of health issues, including reproductive and sexual health, and healthy lifestyles to prevent diabetes and other NCDs.
