Anil Patel is a doctor who received his medical education in England. He is a member of Arch-Vahini, an organization founded in Gujarat in the late 1970s by individuals of diverse educational and cultural backgrounds. Arch-Vahini focuses its efforts where the current development processes hurt the most in an area of eastern Gujarat inhabited mostly by tribals. Over the past twenty years, Arch-Vahini has been involved in setting up a rational primary health care system in Mangrol and the surrounding villages, and with rehabilitation and resettlement of tribals living in the forest areas of Bharuch and Vadodara districts of Gujarat.
