Formerly called
  • Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (1998–2003)
  • Center for Biosecurity of UPMC (2003–2013)
  • UPMC Center for Health Security (2013–2017)

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (abbreviated CHS; previously the UPMC Center for Health Security,[4] the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC, and the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies) is an independent, nonprofit organization of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and part of the Environmental Health and Engineering department. It is concerned with the areas of health consequences from epidemics and disasters as well as averting biological weapons development, and implications of biosecurity for the bioeconomy. It is a think tank that does policy research and gives policy recommendations to the United States government as well as the World Health Organization and the UN Biological Weapons Convention.[1][5]

History

The Center for Health Security began as the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (CCBS) in 1998 at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.[6] D. A. Henderson served as the founding director.[7] At that time, the Center was the first and only academic center focused on biosecurity policy and practice.

At one point around 2003, CHS had become part of a new umbrella organization called the Institute for Global Health and Security at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.[6][8][9]

In November 2003, the leaders left Johns Hopkins to join the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), and relaunched the Center as the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC. This move apparently split the organization in two, and it is unclear what happened to the old organization.[6]

On April 30, 2013, the Center changed its name from "Center for Biosecurity of UPMC" to "UPMC Center for Health Security". This name change reflected a broadening of the scope of CHS's work.

In January 2017, the Center became part of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Its domain name changed from upmchealthsecurity.org to centerforhealthsecurity.org.[4]

Funding

In 2002, the Center received a $1 million grant from the US federal government.[10]

Before 2017, CHS was heavily reliant on government funding.[1]

In January 2017, the Open Philanthropy Project awarded a $16 million grant over three years to the Center for Health Security.[1][11][12]

Publications

The Center for Health Security publishes three online newsletters:

  • Clinicians' Biosecurity News (formerly the Clinicians' Biosecurity Network Report), published twice each month[13]
  • Health Security Headlines, a daily news digest[14] (previously called Biosecurity Briefing,[15] then Biosecurity News in Brief starting in 2009,[16] then Biosecurity News Today starting in 2010 or 2011,[17] and finally Health Security Headlines starting in 2013;[18][19] the digest used to also be weekly until in February 2009)[20]
  • Preparedness Pulsepoints, published weekly[21]0

It maintains and edits a peer reviewed journal Health Security which is part of the Mary Ann Liebert publishing group.

It also provides editorial oversight for the journal Health Security,[22] which was launched in 2003 and called Biosecurity and Bioterrorism: Biodefense Strategy, Practice, and Science until 2015.[23]

CHS also publishes the blog The Bifurcated Needle.[24]

The Open Philanthropy Project's grant writeup of CHS noted several publications:[1]

The Center has published in journals including JAMA and The Lancet. A full list of publications is available on the CHS website. As of February 2017, the list shows more than 400 publications.[25]

Major conferences and events

Operation Dark Winter

From June 22–23, 2001, CHS co-hosted Operation Dark Winter, a senior-level bioterrorism attack simulation involving a covert and widespread smallpox attack on the United States.

Atlantic Storm

On January 14, 2005, CHS helped to host Atlantic Storm, a table-top smallpox bioterrorism simulation.[1]

Clade X

On May 15, 2018, the Center hosted Clade X,[26] a day-long pandemic tabletop exercise that simulated a series of National Security Council–convened meetings of 10 US government leaders, played by individuals prominent in the fields of national security or epidemic response.

Drawing from actual events, Clade X identified important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These issues were designed in a narrative to engage and educate the participants and the audience.

Clade X was livestreamed on Facebook and extensive materials from the exercise are available online.[27][28]

Event 201

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201,[29] a high-level pandemic tabletop exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe coronavirus pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.[30]
