Excerpt
I can hardly count how often I have heard honest people declare, in all good faith, that the idea of health for all by the year zooo is not as revolutionary as we pretend. Some of them refer to Article I of the WHO Constitution, which mentions as its sole objective the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health, to justify ironic comments on those who think the ideal of health for all by the year 2000 is revolutionary. According to them, that is a flagrant case of terminological inexactitude. The fixing of a target date for completing the task of providing health care for all does not appear to them sufficient justification for attributing an unreal revolutionary character to an objective which they find sound and practicaL2 And yet having the courage to speak of health for all by the year 2000 definitely does involve a revolutionary idea.
