This study aimed to identify factors that inspire Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) in India. The results highlight the importance of self-empowerment, adequate financial compensation, and connection to the community’s health system as a few motivating factors for ASHAs. Conversely, implementation and management challenges are sources of ASHA discontent.
