Book synopsis/description:

The book gives an account of the success story of women's self-empowerment through capacity building in rural Bangladesh. It is centered around the dedicated work done by Dr. Zafarullah Choudhury, a revolutionary doctor who returned from abroad during Bangladesh war of liberation in 1971 and took up emergency medical work for the wounded freedom fighters. After the war, he set up a magnificent rural health complex in Savar, 30 km away from Dhaka.

The other author describes this people-oriented model of health work through rural parameters and their on-the-job training in numerous economic activities at Gonoshashthaya Kedra (GK) which goes far beyond just health work. It is model, which recognizes the link of the vulnerable sections of population. It focuses on women and demonstrates the role of capacity building sections of population. It focuses on women and demonstrates the role of capacity building leading to self-empowerment of women. This should be an eye opener for scholars and activists working on gender issues. The case studies presented in this book reveal how helpless, tortured, power-stricken and deserted women who case for help to GK were transformed into bold, hardworking, self-reliant, independent women who were moulding their own lives. This has relevance for many other developing countries around the world.
