Biosafety & Global Public Health

750 450 Biosafety Global Public Health flyerLaboratory biosafety incidents or misuse of infectious agents can lead to infectious disease outbreaks with devastating health and socio-economic impacts. Professional biosafety and biosecurity practices help prevent these incidents, while strengthening laboratory services and supporting public health systems in the global fight against infectious diseases. Rigorous biosafety and biosecurity standards ensure the development of laboratory systems that better control access to and use of dangerous biological pathogens and better protect human, animal and environmental health globally.

The implementation of proactive biosafety policies and programs by governments and organizations committed to public health leads to better infectious disease research, surveillance and diagnosis and more effective global disease prevention and treatment initiatives such as AIDS-Free Generation and the STOP TB Global Laboratory Initiative.
