In The Spotlight:
Strategic Planning and Development:
  • Declaration/Scope - International Public Health Emergency: A multitude of pathogens (XDR TB: Airborne, Pandemic Influenza: Atypical) are evolving in numerous global regions that present an immediate threat to the international community.
  • Pandemic Influenza: International Contingency Planning:  2003: Activation prompted by geographic spread of Avian influenza A subtype H5NI via migratory birds (South Korea), consensus that pathogen presented greatest pandemic threat.
  • International Veterinary Public Health Consortium: Established in 2004 to facilitate participation, collaboration and presentation of topics for (1) advocacy initiatives (2)  country by country analysis, in support of optimization of the veterinary public health infrastructure and (3) funding via communications initiatives with corporate, inter-governmental, non-governmental, United Nations organizations in approximately 195 countries.
  • Atlantic Storm Interactive: A web-based, multimedia presentation that captures the essence of the day and is designed to allow viewers to experience the exercise from the point of view of either a world leader or an audience observer. It will be useful to government officials, technical experts, educators and their students in public policy, public health, international relations, and homeland security—in short, to anyone who is addressing issues related to global biosecurity. -- Center for Biosecurity of UPMC and the Center for Transatlantic Relations of JHU.
