The Rockefeller Foundation Establishes the International Health Commission

The Rockefeller Foundation Establishes the International Health Commission (1913-1916) which laid the foundation for how health and science research and development were to be conducted. It became the International Health Board in 1916 until 1927, and was known as the International Health Division from 1927 until 1951.

Many of today’s health institutions were modeled on this commission’s practices, policies, and research processes such as the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Government’s National Science Foundation (NSF), and the National Institute of Health (NIH). Wikipedia states that: “The World Health Organization, seen as a successor to the IHD, was formed in 1948, and the IHD was subsumed by the larger Rockefeller Foundation in 1951, discontinuing its overseas work.”
