Switzerland and WHO Strengthen Global Health with BioHub System

The BioHub System of the World Health Organization (WHO) serves the secure and regulated exchange of pathogens with epidemic or pandemic potential and accelerates the development of countermeasures. In collaboration with the WHO, Switzerland has made a significant contribution to global health through the implementation and operation of the first BioHub at the Spiez Laboratory. This successful cooperation will now be extended for another three years.
