Jamkhed tells the story of the development of a Sustainable Community- Based Primary Health Programme in one of the poorest parts of India. In 1970, the authors were invited by the leaders of Jamkhed to provide health care in their community. What started out as a modest service programme grew into the Comprehensive Rural Health Project (CRHP), reaching the poor, the marginalised and especially the previously unreached: women and children. Around Jamkhed, scores of men and women have come forward to acquire knowledge and skills in health and development. This empowerment has resulted in a drastic reduction in infant mortality and has improved the quality of village life.
