GBAC joins Global Health Security Agenda Consortium
The Global Biorisk Advisory Council, a Division of ISSA, has joined the Global Health Security Agenda Consortium, a volunteer association of organisations dedicated to helping make the world safe from infectious diseases. The GHSA Consortium Board of Directors has also voted for GBAC to join the steering committee.
"We are proud to be part of this organisation that includes members from a variety of industry sectors including public health and medicine, health security, science and technology, and more," says GBAC executive director Patricia Olinger. "We look forward to collaborating with GHSA Consortium members to help organisations mitigate the effects of infectious disease outbreaks."
The GHSA Consortium consists of leading nongovernmental global health entities promoting collaboration, excellence, innovation and a commitment to implementing the GHSA and other related international frameworks. The GHSA, launched in 2014, is a collective of more than 70 countries and international organisations envisioning a world without global health threats from infectious diseases.
"As a member of the steering committee, we will help shape priorities for the organisation to mitigate current and future biological threats," says Patricia. "I look forward to representing GBAC in this prestigious organisation and advancing the consortium's mission."
GBAC is a network of experts in global health and biorisk mitigation that provides training, education, consulting and third-party accreditation programs to help organisations and businesses prepare for, respond to, and recover from outbreaks of infectious disease.
