The National Biosurveillance Integration Center one-pager

The United States is confronted by an array of biological threats from natural, accidental, or deliberate origins that could cause tragic loss of human life, severe economic damage, and significant harm to critical infrastructure and key resources. To address these threats, the United States has numerous biosurveillance capabilities that monitor human, plant, and animal health, as well as the food and environmental domains. These capabilities are distributed across the public and private sectors. The National Biosurveillance Integration Center (NBIC) has the responsibility to integrate, analyze, and share the nation’s biosurveillance information provided from these distributed capabilities.
