Action Package Prevent-3 Biosafety and Biosecurity (APP3)
The Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) Action Package Prevent-3 Biosafety and Biosecurity (APP3) aims to advance global biosafety and biosecurity, in support of international instruments and agreements, including the International Health Regulations (IHR) (2005), the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) (1975), and United Nations Security Council Resolution 1540 (2004). APP3 maintains that strong, whole-of-society biosafety and biosecurity systems enable countries to protect populations and counter biological threats, regardless of origin – natural, accidental, or intentional – while also fostering scientific progress and improving health security through international collaboration.

“We learn how specific actions have enhanced Biosafety & Biosecurity in other countries. Consequently, we become aware of our own gaps, the guide towards improvement and the urgency needed. APP3 is a community for shared learning and awakening for action.”
