The sponsor of the project is The Rockefeller Foundation.


From the website of the project at Cambridge,

"The Common Security Forum (CSF), based at the Centre for History and Economics, King’s College, Cambridge, has, with the generous support of the Rockefeller Foundation, initiated a new program on Economic Crises and Health in Historical Perspective which will bring together, in 2009-2010, historians of medicine and public health, scholars of health policy, economic historians, and policy-makers from the United Nations and national governments."

One participant is Lincoln Chen, who has worked for the Rockefeller Foundation (for five years as Executive Vice President for Strategy of the Rockefeller Foundation) and Ford Foundation and is also a member of the CFR.
