WildHealthNet is currently funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Biological Threat Reduction Program (BTRP) of the U.S. Department of Defense (2018-2022) and the Wildlife Conservation Society Health Program. The initiative builds on other large-scale pathogen surveillance projects like USAID's PREDICT1-2 (2009-2020), USAID’s Wild Bird Global Avian Influenza Network for Surveillance (GAINS) (2006-2009), the Lao PDR-Cambodia One Health Surveillance and Laboratory Network (LACANET) (2014-2018), and the WCS-led long-term wildlife mortality surveillance in northern Republic of Congo (2005-present; Kuisma et al. 2019).
