Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1996
This description of Abhay Shukla's work was prepared when Abhay Shukla was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
Abhay Shukla has successfully demonstrated that health care programs can be initiated as a citizen-based, low-cost and locally sustainable activity by drawing upon the resources of existing community-based organizations. By initiating health campaigns on a mass basis in Indian rural and tribal areas, he has laid the foundation for a large-scale democratically directed health movement.
