Annual Report of the Director 1996: Healthy People, Healthy Spaces
Although there may well be modern versions of the concept of a good that might be at variance with Aristotle's, the view that health may be found among the goods to be created and nurtured by associations remains as one of our working hypotheses. Plus, health itself may lead to the formation of associations in particular spaces that, in turn, contribute to other equally desirable goods. (Official Document, © PAHO, 1996)(31/Dec/1996)
