Turning Knowledge into Health

An increase of three decades in the life expectancy of persons born in numerous countries and regions of the West during the twentieth century is the clearest exponent of the social value of science and the triumph of public-health policies over illness. Continuing to pursue this mission, expanding it to cover the thousands of rare diseases still untreated, and to cover all countries and all of their citizens is our challenge for the coming decades.
