Vision & Mission

Vision and Mission

The IFBA’s mission is “safe, secure and responsible work with biological materials” lays the foundation for the implementation of strategies to minimize the serious dangers that can arise from the failure to implement sound biosafety and biosecurity practices. Following on the successful 2011 Bangkok Conference, the IFBA identified three priority strategic objectives to realize the IFBA’s mission and vision of “becoming the global resource for biorisk management”. These three objectives draw attention to the priorities identified by our Members, including the need for advocacy at national levels, and the development of innovative approaches for affordable biosafety and biosecurity capacities appropriate for those areas of the world with limited resources. Specific strategies and technologies for linking and leveraging resources, expertise and support are also included in our work plan. We conduct our work in partnership with our Members to strengthen biosafety at the local, regional and international levels.

strategic objectives

The IFBA’s portfolio of programs addresses multiple threats to human security, reaching across the entire spectrum of biological threats from naturally occurring outbreaks of infectious diseases, to research, to bioterrorism preparedness and response. IFBA’s multi-faceted and interconnected program areas span multiple sectors and deliver sustainable capacity building programs across disciplines and borders.
