Development of a biological incident database in the context of the UN global counter-terrorism strategy

As part of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, UNODA is developing an online Biological Incident Database (BID). To assist Member States in preventing and combating terrorism, BID categorizes the causes of disease outbreaks as natural, accidental or deliberate. It provides a platform for information sharing, fostering a better understanding of the range of biological incidents as well as past responses and lessons learned. BID should serve as an invaluable preparation tool should a similar incident occur in the future. UNODA hopes that Member States will use the available pilot system of BID and provide feedback.
