Researchers call for worldwide biosurveillance network to protect from diseases
Given the importance for the health of a global population, the team of scientists recommend a “decentralized” disease surveillance system, enabled by modern pathogen-detection methods, which builds in-country capacity for addressing challenges.

The network should expand monitoring beyond human disease outbreaks to encompass a broader understanding of pathogens and evaluate their spillover risk (of spreading from wildlife to humans or vice versa),
