BioHub Initiative by WHO
About BioHub Facility:
♦ This facility will aid in the safe receipt, storage, sequencing, and preparation of biological materials for distribution to other laboratories, thereby enhancing global preparedness against these pathogens.
♦ It will allow member states to share biological materials with and through the BioHub under pre-agreed-upon terms, such as biosafety, biosecurity, and other applicable regulations.
♦ In the meantime, WHO will expand its BioHub System to allow qualified entities – such as manufacturers – to use biological materials in the development of medical by-products for equitable distribution to countries.
