During 2009 states continued to develop strategies for countering threats from the misuse of chemical and biological materials. Meetings of the states parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention and the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention focused on universality and national implementation strategies. The EU and the USA presented new chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) policies that emphasize the importance of enhancing international assistance and cooperation on related technologies for peaceful purposes. Other trends were the move towards dealing with misuses of the life sciences and emerging technologies and recognition of the importance of existing public health infrastructure to address international disease surveillance challenges and threats such as the H1N1 pandemic.
