Alternate Title: HSPD 10: Biodefense for the 21st Century

Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 10 outlines policy for Biodefense in the 21st century. "The United States has pursued aggressively a broad range of programs and capabilities to confront the biological weapons threat. These actions, taken together, represent an extraordinary level of effort by any measure. Based on these accomplishments, we conducted a comprehensive evaluation of our biological defense capabilities to identify future priorities and actions to support them. The results of that study provide a blueprint for our future biodefense program, Biodefense for the 21st Century, that fully integrates the sustained efforts of the national and homeland security, medical, public health, intelligence, diplomatic, and law enforcement communities. Specific direction to departments and agencies to carry out this biodefense program is contained in a classified version of this directive."
