Pharmaceuticals in the context of the threat for chemical, biological and radio-nuclear terrorism

In this scientific advisory report on public health policy, the Superior Health Council of Belgium provides a revision of the advisory report of 2003 on the necessary stockpiles of pharmaceuticals in case of biological and chemical terrorism and includes radio-nuclear threats in this new report. Besides advising on a necessary stockpile of antidotes the Council concludes that establishing and maintaining a stock is important but insufficient, and that a broader approach is mandatory.
