Description The Rockefeller Foundation has a long history of providing support for disease surveillance in Asia, globally, and more recently in Africa (1–3). Most recently, from 2007–2012, the Foundation provided $22 million in support for the Disease Surveillance Networks (DSN) Initiative with the goal of contributing to the mitigation of disease outbreaks by supporting transnational and inter-disciplinary networks aimed at strengthening national, regional, and global disease surveillance and response systems. Specifically, the DSN Initiative aimed to build individual and institutional capacity to conduct disease surveillance and response efficiently and effectively; build bridges between disease surveillance networks and international agencies to increase the effectiveness of global response systems; and strengthen connections between animal health, human health, and environmental health through a “One Health” approach.(Published: 25 January 2013)Citation: Emerg Health Threats J 2013, 6: 19959 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/ehtj.v6i0.19959
