In 2006 the Sixth Review Conference of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention agreed an inter-sessional process for 2007–10 which consists of four meetings to be held in that period. In 2009 the Meeting of Experts took place on 24–28 August, and the Meeting of States Parties was held on 7–11 December.10 The mandate of the 2009 meetings was to ‘discuss, and promote common understanding and effective action on promoting capacity building in the fields of disease surveillance, detection, diagnosis, and containment of infectious diseases’.11 The participants focused on the recognition of infectious diseases as a global threat with potential severe implications for all states, regardless of whether such diseases have natural, deliberate or accidental causes.
