This description of Annibal Coelho de Amorim's work was prepared when Annibal Coelho de Amorim was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
Brazilian neurologist Annibal do Amorim has successfully demonstrated a way to democratize public human service institutions that (1) break down prevailing health and human services models in which "the expert treats the passive patient;" (2) enable local citizens to initiate new volunteer-based solutions; and (3) stimulate further citizen action.
