BioSense Project

BioSense is a program of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) that tracks health problems as they evolve. This collaborative project aims to provide public health officials with the data, information and tools they need to better prepare for and coordinate responses to safeguard and improve the health of the American people.

Mandated in the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, the CDC BioSense Program was launched in 2003 to establish an integrated national public health surveillance system for early detection and rapid assessment of potential bioterrorism-related illness.
