In the words of Dr Margaret Chan, Director of the World Health Organisation:
"In moving forward, it is important to learn from the past and, in looking back, it is clear that we can do better in the future, draw on the lessons of the past, consider the challenges that lie ahead, and identify major avenues for health systems to narrow the intolerable gaps between aspiration and implementation."
