Plenary Presentations Global Biosafety and Biosecurity Challenges: Options for Nations with Limited Resources J. Craig Reed (Inspirion Biosciences, United States) described biosafety and biosecurity needs that are common in low-resource countries and the challenges associated with using the available resources to address those needs.

A recent survey13 by FAO and A-PBA of BSL-2 and BSL-3 labs in seven countries in the Asia-Pacific region, for example, indicated that many labs are below an acceptable level of functionality for their BSL level. The survey noted that often HEPA filters lack the dampers necessary for maintenance, biological safety cabinets (BSCs) are uncertified and usually powered off, and unreliable electrical power is not backed up with generators. Overall, about 30% of the Class II BSCs tested were poorly designed or dysfunctional and failed, and many BSL-3 facilities were either designed incorrectly or being operated incorrectly.
