HSP Congratulates BioRisk Association Of The Philippines On Its Fifth Anniversary

HSP congratulates the BioRisk Association of the Philippines (BRAP) on their recent fifth anniversary. Over the past five years, BRAP has grown from 20 to over 600 members all over the Philippines. They have always been an incredible partner to HSP in our mission to build biosafety and biosecurity capacity in the Philippines.

HSP’s work with BRAP dates back to April 2016, when HSP and BRAP held a Laboratory Network meeting in Cebu. Most recently, HSP has collaborated with BRAP to put on a BioRisk Manual Writing Workshop in Colombo, Sri Lanka, as well as on an extensive effort to strengthen the Philippines’ lab transport security.

At the virtual celebration of BRAP’s fifth anniversary, HSP’s own Dr. Prasad Kudavalli gave the keynote address entitled, “Biosafety & Biosecurity: Now & Post-Pandemic.” Over 320 of BRAP’s members attended the September 2nd celebration and thousands more watched it on Facebook. HSP sends our best wishes to everyone at BRAP and hopes they have many more years of continued success and growth.
