About the Initiative

India was not among the first countries hit by Covid-19. However, India was predicted to be high-risk for Covid1-19 for a number of reasons. These reasons included: dense population, poor health infrastructure, lack of awareness among common people.
India has shown great resolve to fight this deadly virus. However, we have not won the war against the virus yet. Second wave is upon us. Despite the ongoing vaccination, more and more people are contracting the infection.
But we all are optimistic. We know we are going to win this war. Our collective strength and resolve have made India a symbol of resilience and hope. India's collective resolve to fight the pandemic could be seen in the efforts of Covid warriors. Doctors, paramedics, nurses, sanitation workers, government staff, ordinary men and women all are engaged in the fight against the Covid-19. Last year, HealthWire Media had come up with the 'Healthcare Crusaders Awards" to celebrate these heroes. Covid Warriors were honored in different categories. We have once again decided to honour the Covid-19 warriors who have risked their lives and shown exemplary courage to fight the pandemic.
Like the past year's award ceremony, this year too, we will honor and celebrate Covid crusaders who are keeping us safe in these difficult times.
