Overview Edit

The Biosurveillance Indications and Warning Analytic Community (BIWAC) is a self-governing interagency body composed of federal officials who are actively responsible for pursuing a biosurveillance mission. Members include CDC's Global Disease Detection Operations Center, HHS’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), USDA's Center for Epidemiology and Animal Health, USDA's Center for Plant Health Science and Technology, DHS' National Biosurveillance Integration Center, DOD’s Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction, Northern Command, National Center for Medical Intelligence, and the Department of State.

Its mission is to provide a secure interagency forum for collaborative exchange of information among members regarding indications and warning of biological events that could threaten U.S. national interests. Sharing of real-time and near real-time data and the interpretation thereof among members provides actionable information to warn decision makers in order to mitigate possible adverse outcomes during rapidly evolving situations.
