The Global Biosurveillance Portal: Biosurveillance for the Department of Defense


The 2012 National Strategy for Biosurveillance1 calls for improved integration, synchronization, and coordination of national biosurveillance activities and acknowledges the benefits of collective knowledge through sharing and receiving of biosurveillance information via strengthened partnerships amongst international, federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, private sector, nongovernmental, academic and other participants. To assist in meeting these goals and goals specifically called out by United States (U.S.) Military and international partners, the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense began developing a software suite to support biosurveillance needs. In October 2014, the Biosurveillance Portal (BSP) will be deployed to support biosurveillance operations in the Korean Theater. In October 2016, the BSP will be available globally


This presentation aims to describe the development, initial use, and future directions of the Biosurveillance Portal.
