Indian health care delivery system is a three tire system, with FHW's being the basic unit of service delivery. All the components of public health system are being implemented by them. The well functioning health care delivery system requires skilled and competent nursing workforce. The performance of female health workers does not depend solely on her knowledge level and competency, but to a large extent upon the facilities being provided by the organization, the demography of the region and upon other factors such as religion, occupation of her husband and other associated factors. The study explores the factors which contribute in performance of FHW's.
Stratified sampling technique was used to identify the target of the study, female health workers, district level officials and supervisory staff. Use of questionnaire and structured interviews were conducted to get responses of FHW's and other officials. Octapace tool has been used to design the questionnaire.
The study shows that only 40% of FHW's scored well in terms of performance, which depends upon many factors.
The performance of FHW's depends on many factors which are interrelated with each other. The motivation level of FHW's plays big role in the achievement of organizational goals.
