Safe, secure and responsible work with biological materials requires a global commitment and the leveraging of multiple stakeholders at the international, regional and local levels. The IFBA strives to bring various partners together and join forces with like-minded organizations. We collaborate with national animal and health authorities, with regional and international organizations (e.g. ASEAN, WHO, OIE, ASEAN, BWC, UN1540, Interpol, Stop TB Partnership, JEE Alliance, Chatham House) and with like-minded professional associations (e.g. International Federation of Biomedical Laboratory Science, African Society for Laboratory Medicine).
