Biosurveillance as initially described by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 21 and modernized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Institute of Medicine (IOM), however, is dependent upon "local up" (meaning that local public health is the source of zoonotic disease
intelligence, not the "top down" recipient) surveillance intelligence networks (Bush, 2007; DHS, 2012).
The combination of high prices for meat products and outbreaks of new and recurring zoonotic diseases
