With the advent of the 21st century, science and technology were expected to be formidable forces that would hopefully improve population health and well-being.1 Furthermore, these forces would drive a rapidly changing and interconnected world, with communities and nations worldwide sharing common rewards (eg, economic development, health, and welfare) and facing common risks (eg, pandemics, chronic noncommunicable diseases, environmental damage, nuclear weapons, climate change). In this context, effective governance and communications were to be cornerstones for delivering the promise of science and technology for enhancing public health.
