ABSTRACT

Building Resilience to Biothreats: An Assessment of Unmet Core Global Health Security Needs   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Global health security is the bulwark against catastrophic public health events. Building this security is a timely and urgent challenge for the world as it faces an increasing rate of emergent and re-emergent infectious disease events tied to changing pressures on animals and ecosystems, resistance to antimicrobials, and avenues for intentional dissemination-- all with prospects of rapid spread through our highly mobile population. To date, no end-to-end review of the components needed for effective prevention, detection, response, and recovery from major biological events of any cause, nor an assessment to determine those components that are receiving insufficient attention, has been published."
