Three Pillars of biosecurity engagement

Biosafety and Biosecurity

Increase biosafety and biosecurity through technical consultations, risk assessments, and training courses, and build the human capacity and internal expertise to create a sustainable culture of laboratory biorisk management

Disease Detection and Control

Strengthen the capacity for public and veterinary health systems to detect, report, and control infectious disease outbreaks

Scientist Engagement

Enhance global health security and foster safe, secure, and sustainable bioscience capacity through joint scientific collaborations designed to help prevent, detect, and respond to biological threats

Sustainable Capacity

Focus on long-term sustainability and capacity building that creates an infrastructure for biorisk management and disease detection and control at all levels within a country and region

Our Mission

The mission of the Biosecurity Engagement Program (BEP) is to reduce the risks posed by biological threats. BEP efforts leverage technical resources and experts from numerous U.S. agencies, universities, international organizations, NGOs, and the National Academies of Sciences to meet its core objectives. In every country where BEP is active, the overarching goal of our programmatic activities is to work with governments, scientists, and other stakeholders to build sustainable capacity for biosecurity, biosafety, disease surveillance, and cooperative scientific research.
