Good health is a prerequisite to the enjoyment of ‘pursuit of happiness.’ Whenever the miracles of modern medicine are beyond the reach of any group of Americans, for whatever reason - economic, geographic, occupational or other - we must find a way to meet their needs and fulfill their hopes.

For one true measure of a nation is its success in fulfilling the promise of a better life for each of its members. Let this be the measure of our nation.

- President Kennedy, Special Message to the Congress on Urgent Health Needs, 2/27/62
