The United States is failing to address its most urgent threat--biological proliferation and terrorism. Specific concerns raised in the report, relating to U.S. biosecurity, include: developing a common understanding of the biothreat. While the National Security Council is developing a Bioweapons Prevention Strategy--the first of its kind--there is a lack of common understanding across the Administration and Congress about the threat of biological terrorism; executive responsibility. Although the President appointed a WMD Coordinator, the Commission strongly recommends the National Security Council needs a senior official whose sole responsibility is to improve America's capability for biodefense; funding for the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and Project BioShield at the US Department of Health and Human Services. These programs develop and purchase medicines to prevent and respond to biological, radiological, or nuclear attack; disease surveillance--the nation needs to improve domestic and international disease surveillance in order to quickly recognize a disease emergency, whether natural or manmade
