The International Year of the Ocean in 1998 focused considerable attention on the important links between healthy oceans and healthy humans. From Monsoons to Microbes , a report released by the National Academy of Sciences in 1999, drew further attention to this important link.

The meeting, held from November 16 to 19, 1999 in Bermuda, was jointly sponsored by the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO.
