  2. 2. CONTENTS • Definition of biological warfare • What is a biological weapon • Features of bio terrorism • History • Importance of awareness of bio warfare • Advantages, disadvantages and threats of BW • Status of bio warfare in the world • The issue today • Where do we go from here? • Measures taken to control BW • Conclusions • References
  3. 3. DEFINITION OF BIO-WARFARE Bio terrorism is the threat or use of biological agents by individuals or groups motivated by a political, religious, ecological, social, or for other ideological objectives to instill fear or cause illness or death in order to achieve their objective.
  4. 4. WHAT IS A BIOLOGICAL WEAPON? • Uses a living organism or its toxic agent • delivery device • Both conventional and unconventional means of delivery
  5. 5. EXAMPLES OF VARIOUS LETHAL WEAPONS Bacteria: Anthrax, Brucella, Melioidosis, Tularaemia, Plague Toxins: Botulinum, Ricin THE VARIOUS FACTORS OF PROPOGATION: • AVAILABILITY •CONTAGIOUSNESS •MORTALITY •SUITABLE FOR DISSEMINATION IN INFECTIVE FORM •LACK OF EFFECTIVE TREATMENT
  6. 6. HISTORY
  7. 7. IMPORTANCE OF AWARENESS ON BIO-WARFARE (BW) • Biological Warfare can wipe out an entire population in seconds. • Harm animals and damage harvested crops • Inexpensive to produce biological weapons • Believe it or not, almost anyone can make them!!!!
  8. 8. ADVANTAGES OF BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS Multiple Methods For Delivery Wide Utility - non-discriminating, cause sickness, death, panic, may disseminate widely, may be persistent Good Logistics - cheap to make and store Versatile - can be in small or large quantities Defence May Be Difficult Cause No Damage To Infrastructure Easy To Conceal ‘Status’ WMD - ‘poor man’s nuclear weapon’
  9. 9. DISADVANTAGES • Slow Onset (except toxins) • Indiscriminate • Difficult To Control Distribution Especially If Contagious • Preventive and/or Treatment Measures For Some • Lack Of Impressive Precedents • Level Of Technical Sophistication At Least Moderate • International Taboo
  10. 10. STATUS OF BIO WEAPONS IN THE WORLD
  11. 11. THE ISSUE TODAY Characteristics and Associated Risks • Small amount for affect • Size makes concealment, transportation, and dissemination easy • ‘Information on how to develop biological agents is readily available in open source literature, and even now on the Internet.’ • There is an urgent need to spread awareness on this issue.
  12. 12. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?? • Establish a new mindset • Identify personnel • Focus on antibiotics • Develop and acquire masks • Acquire state-of-the-art detectors • Focus intelligence • Strengthen coordination
  13. 13. MEASURES TAKEN TO CONTROL BW • The 1925 Geneva Protocol – Prohibits the use of asphyxiating, poisonous, or other gases and all analogous liquids, materials or devices in warfare – ‘Customary international law’ – Bans use not possession – No-first-use-treaty 1972 Biological Weapons Convention – Negotiations were concluded following the US unilaterally renounced biological weapons – First treaty to ban an entire class of weapons – Prohibits development, production, stockpiling and acquisition of biological weapons – Does not obstruct non-hostile use of biological agents but still covers future weaponization of agents
  14. 14. MAPW :THE FIGHT AGAINST BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS The Medical Association for Prevention of War continues to: • Educate health professionals, scientists and the general public about the dangers of chemical and biological weapons • Lobby the Australian government to support the Chemical and Biological Weapons Convention regimes and other related non-proliferation architecture • Campaign for a world free of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons
  15. 15. CONCLUSIONS • WE BELIEVE THAT BIOLOGICAL WARFARE ARE FAR TOO HARMFUL TO BE EFFECTIVELY AND HUMANLY USED IN WARFARE • COUNTRIES SHOULD BE AGAINST PRODUCTION OF BIOLOGICAL WAR WEAPONS
