Appendix G
Bioterrorism: A National and Global Threat1

(Excerpts)


A substantial share of Russian scientific and organizational measures to counter bioterrorism are being carried out in conjunction with the existing system for combating infectious diseases. The main objectives in this system are

  • increasing the effectiveness of epidemiological monitoring of infectious diseases on the basis of comprehensive use of computerized information and analytical systems, environmental monitoring, and collective immunity of the population

  • developing regulations and methodologies with regard to infectious disease prophylaxis

  • implementing federal and regional programs to promote the sanitary-epidemiological welfare of the population

  • improving the infectious disease vaccination system

  • expanding the public information system for persuading the population to take personal and societal measures for infectious disease prophylaxis

  • strengthening the material and technical infrastructure of laboratories in the treatment and prophylaxis institutions and centers of the State Sanitary Epidemiological Surveillance Service, providing them with the necessary equip-

ment, and introducing modern methods for detecting infectious disease pathogens (polymerase chain reaction, and others)

  • stepping up scientific research in the area of diagnostics, epidemiology, treatment, and prophylaxis of infectious diseases.

In July 2005, the National Academies released the report Biological Science and Biotechnology in Russia: Controlling Diseases and Enhancing Security. The report offered a number of recommendations that could help restore Russia’s ability to join with the United States and the broader international community in leading an expanded global effort to control infectious diseases. A proposed bilateral intergovernmental commission could play a pivotal role toward that end as cooperation moves from assistance to partnership. The report proposed the establishment of two model State Sanitary Epidemiological Surveillance Centers in Russia, more focused support of competitively selected Russian research groups as centers of excellence, the promotion of investments in biotechnology niches that are well suited for Russian companies, and expanded opportunities for young scientists to achieve scientific leadership positions in Russia. Also, the report highlighted the importance of U.S. programs that support the integration of former Soviet defense scientists with civilian researchers who had not been involved in military-related activities.
