Countering Biological Threats and promoting the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) continue to be high priorities for the President and his Administration. The attached list of Countering Biological Threats priorities was developed by the National Security Council staff in coordination with the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) , endorsed by the Interagency Policy Committee on Countering Biological Threats, and is consistent with the objectives and focus of the United States National Strategy for Countering Biological Threats and the GHSA.
