The 5 day event is aimed at training Central Asian specialists, including three from Afghanistan, to better lab practices in order to reduce possible threats of bio-material handling. The advanced course on bio-risk management will introduce the new concept of bio-risk management, which combines risk assessment, risk mitigation, and performance systems. The course gives participants an opportunity to use a robust methodology to identify and control the biosafety and biosecurity risks of laboratories. Participants will be empowered with the skills, tools, and confidence to advise and guide on sustainable bio-risk management that will ultimately reduce the threat of infectious disease in local laboratory environments.
Members of the team of instructors come from Afghanistan, Canada, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.
A distance learning course is also offered from March to July 2011.
