Passing the Baton

Since the shuttering of the Rockefeller Foundation’s Disease Surveillance Networks Initiative in 2012, the world of public health has been on the lookout for a new giant to pick up the disease surveillance baton.

Since then, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Skoll Global Threats Fund and billionaire Paul Allen have all dedicated some funding towards disease surveillance efforts. And earlier this year, the Open Philanthropy Project added staff to its initiative on biosecurity and pandemic preparedness. Despite these efforts, the opportunity for a new leader in disease surveillance funding remains.
