In order to protect the public and facilitate trade, animals, plants, and food must be tested. This critical aspect of public health allows for us to detect diseases and also prove to our trade partners that we are safe to trade with. BAHFSA has dedicated a considerable amount of resources to diagnostic development in order to ensure that public health is protected from harmful pathogens and contaminants.
