Biosecurity Workshop: Awareness Raising Efforts in an ASEAN Regional Perspective

The term biosecurity refers to the protection, control of, and accountability for high-consequence biological agents and toxins, and critical relevant biological materials and information within laboratories to prevent unauthorized possession, loss, theft, misuse, diversion, or intentional release” (definition by White House). Biosecurity has become an issue of growing importance since the attacks of 9/11 and the subsequent spread of anthrax letters in the United States. Research for medical or other useful purposes can lead to insights or technologies that also can be misused for the development of biological weapons. This kind of research is labelled as dual use research. Attention for biosecurity and dual use research has grown because of the results of recent research of the H5N1 (bird flu) virus in The Netherlands and in the US. As the viruses were obtained from Asian countries, this debate is relevant also for ASEAN.
