The Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation aims to achieve equitable growth by expanding opportunity for more people in more places worldwide, and to build resilience by helping them prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. In today’s dynamic and interconnected world, The Rockefeller Foundation has a unique ability to address the emerging challenges facing humankind through innovation, intervention and influence in order to shape agendas and inform decision making. The Rockefeller Foundation is pleased to be helping to lead the call for a new health discipline—planetary health— one that goes beyond the boundaries of our existing global health framework to take into consideration the natural systems upon which human health depends.
