Biosurveillance: Challenges and Options for the National Biosurveillance Integration Center
Chris Currie (au)
A biological event, such as a pandemic or a terrorist attack with a weapon of mass destruction, could have catastrophic consequences for the nation. This potential threat underscores the importance of a national biosurveillance capability -- that is, the ability to detect biological events of national significance to provide early warning and information to guide public health and emergency response. The 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 addressed this capability, in part, by creating the National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); it was tasked with integrating information from human health, animal, plant, food, and environmental monitoring systems across the federal government. This report discusses the (1) extent to which NBIC is implementing its roles as a biosurveillance integrator; and (2) options for improving such integration. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
