The Rockefeller Foundation Welcomes New WHO Hub for Pandemic and Epidemic Intelligence

Statement from Dr. Rick Bright, Senior Vice-President, Pandemic Prevention and Response

NEW YORK | May 4, 2021 – The Rockefeller Foundation welcomes today’s announcement of a new World Health Organization (WHO) Hub for Pandemic and Epidemic Intelligence and looks forward to continuing our close collaborations with the WHO and other organizations to prevent future pandemics.

The development of the new Hub by the WHO and the Federal Republic of Germany as a global platform for sharing disease outbreak information, data and analytics will be an essential part of the future global network to predict, detect, and prevent worldwide health threats.

The Rockefeller Foundation is developing a complementary entity capable of producing data insights that can be used to contain a disease outbreak in the first 100 days. This work builds upon the Foundation’s legacy of catalytic health investments and more recent work to leverage the power of data and technology to improve health outcomes globally.

WHO has unparallel legitimacy and ability to lead pandemic response globally. The Rockefeller Foundation remains steadfast in our support to ensure they have the data and analytical information they need to protect global health and well-being.
