To the Editor: Drs Koplan and Fleming1 present a list of 10 public health challenges for the next century. I imagine many readers will be tempted to add pet projects of their own. One unmentioned challenge seems to me to be so fundamental and to have such a profound impact on several of the original 10 challenges that I offer it for consideration.
