ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activists) Worker is a female health volunteer to provide effective, accessible and affordable primary health care to the vulnerable sections of the population. The Reproductive and Child Health programme is channelized to the community through these ASHA Workers. Hence this study was conducted to evaluate the performance of ASHA workers by the beneficiaries of Reproductive and Child Health Programme. Objective of the study is to assess the performance of ASHA workers in reproductive health care services and to find out the relationship between the attitude towards job, beneficiaries and RCH Programme and performance of ASHA workers rated by their beneficiaries. The study revealed that majority of the ASHA workers were moderate performers and majority of them have favourable attitude towards their job, beneficiaries and towards Reproductive and Child Health Programme. Attitude towards their job had significant difference at the three different performance levels rated by their beneficiaries.
