The Review identified a number of key issues and provided several policy recommendations related to biosecurity developments for the year ending May 2010. Key findings noted the problems of continued reliance on foreign vaccine supply for pandemic and other large scale public health emergencies. A feasibility study was recommended to look into the domestic production of vaccine for pandemic. In addition, revisions of private international laws concerning contracts for vaccinations during pandemic were recommended in case the U.S. continues to rely on foreign production of vaccine for public health emergencies.
Analysis of the events surrounding the 2009 flu scare revealed that domestic health actions are uniquely tied to foreign relations during pandemic. Domestic public health policies would have likely caused serious harm to international relations had the pandemic stayed on its forecasted path. Therefore, public health recommendations should be made with foreign policy implications in mind. Moreover, it was noted that the International Health Regulations of 2005 should be revisited after the 2009 H1N1 scare in like manner to the review following the SARS outbreak. This would provide an opportunity to increase harmonization of pandemic response efforts for all nations via dual benefit strategies.
A review of the major reports on lab security released in 2009 is also provided. The main findings include the observations that centralized federal oversight is needed to standardize Personnel Reliability Programs for high containment labs. A committee membership analysis was also conducted and recommendations were made to improve flaws in the committee process by allowing for dissenting opinions in expert committee reports.
