Mahesh Maskey relates the story of how physicians have contributed to the volatile politics of Nepal in the last decades in the struggle to ensure health as a human right within the broader macroeconomic and political picture. He seeks to show, as one of the physicians engaged in movement, how physicians consciously have engaged in political work in Nepal, following Virchow's understanding of politics as medicine writ large (Eisenberg, 1987).Development (2004) 47, 122–130. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100039
