Global Health Security Action Group (GHSAG)

The meeting of the Risk Management and Communications Working Group (RMCWG) in Luxembourg on 26-28 February was the second meeting of the working group. The GHSAG senior official meeting in Ottawa in June 2007 identified chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) early warning as an area with great potential to support the efforts of GHSAG.RMCWG was mandated to undertake preliminary assessments of the opportunities. The purpose of the meeting was to identify - in the context of CBRN hazards and risks - the capacities and the input needs of the existing IT systems working currently in the early detection of public health threats.
