mpact both locally and internationally. The region has to contend annually with very severe weather conditions that exacerbate natural disease outbreaks making reliance on fixed laboratories unfeasible," according to Dr. Steve Jones Director, Counter Bio-Terrorism Operations for Public Health Agency Canada during the 2010 Olympics. "This lab will put cutting-edge diagnostic capability directly into the outbreak zone and enhance the capabilities for critical decisions in a public health emergency."

The mobile unit was designed by Germfree, a US manufacturer that has also provided bio-containment labs to remote regions in Asia and Africa. Germfree, in cooperation with the US Army, has developed many new technologies that make these advanced mobile labs a viable option.

"Providing Mexico with this public health capability contributes to our global capacity in health, disease surveillance, early warning, response, recovery and mitigation by providing one more tool in protecting the health of our world," concludes Ms. Heyl.
