Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Biological threats to humans, animals, agriculture, and the environment are among the most serious threats facing the United States and preparing for biothreats is a critical aspect of our national security. The
National Biodefense Strategy sets the course for the United States to combat the serious biothreats our country faces, whether they arise from natural outbreaks of disease, accidents involving high consequence pathogens, or the actions of terrorists or state actors.
The Biodefense Summit aims to engage the biodefense stakeholder community to inform national biodefense enterprise efforts to counter biological threats, reduce risk, prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from biological incidents. The Summit will inform implementation of the National Biodefense Strategy. Learn More >>
