[Comment] The spirit of Mexico: a decade on

November, 2014, marks the 10th anniversary of the Mexico Ministerial Summit on Health Research, attended by 20 ministers of health and delegations from 51 countries. Convened by the Government of Mexico, the Global Forum for Health Research, and WHO, the Summit endorsed the role of knowledge for better health1 through the Mexico Statement2 and a resolution passed at the World Health Assembly in 2005.3 Initially driven by the strong personal commitment and vision of WHO’s then Director-General, the late Lee Jong-wook, much progress has been made in the past decade; however, substantial challenges remain.
