"Combating Biological Terrorism:
Roadmaps for Global Strategies"
Biological security concerns are a permanent fixture of history, ranging from Mother Nature’s infectious diseases to man-made threats. Recent epidemics, such as Ebola and Zika, and the potential dangers of biological terrorism urgently need to be addressed through international partnerships to reduce the gravest health risks at home and abroad.
Experts with governmental, inter-governmental, and non-governmental experience will provide an assessment of future challenges and offer recommendations for international comprehensive biosecurity strategies.
