This is the second edition of the Kenya Laboratory Biosafety and Biosecurity Training
Curriculum that was developed in 2014 and has been improved to embrace Biorisk Management (BRM) on the basis of a one-health approach as advocated by World Health Organization (WHO).
It is designed to strategically and professionally address the gaps identified during the WHO -Joint External Evaluation (WHO-JEE) exercise for Kenya to generate a harmonized and integrated curriculum based on international best practices and standards that would strengthen BRM systems for the human, animal and plant health sector laboratories as well as other sectors.
The improved curriculum namely Kenya Laboratory Biorisk Management Curriculum (KLBRMC), consists of eleven modules with a broad applicability to all sectors. These modules mainly emphasizes on bio-threat reduction, a priority activity particularly in the face of continued disease outbreaks, emerging and re-emerging disease pathogens and bioterrorism threats. In addition they support the country’s compliance to its national, regional and global obligations.
