    Introduction
    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.
