The AfBSA Conference gives a unique opportunity for biosafety professionals to discuss leadership in biorisk management, biohazard waste management and other laboratory biosafety and biosecurity issues in light of emerging diseases in Africa.
The theme of the 4th Annual Biological Safety Conference is “BRIDGING THE GAPS BETWEEN LABORATORY SAFETY AND EMERGING GLOBAL HEALTH ISSUES" which has been chosen to reflect current laboratory biosafety and biosecurity issues, especially with regards to the Ebola epidemic in western Africa which has highlighted the weakness of biosafety and biosecurity practices in clinical settings within healthcare systems on the continent.
