Our vision & Our mission

Our vision is our long-term strategic outcome. We believe in a sure future for the people of Mali and the people of the sub-region, in terms of biosafety and biosecurity. We work through all our actions and activities of information, awareness and training to achieve this vision. We believe that our vision is one that the people of Mali and the region can support.
MABB Vision is: "Safety and Biosecurity for All in Mali and West Africa"

In order to work towards the realization of our vision, we have developed a mission statement - This statement is the starting point of the journey to achieve our mission. This mission is to promote biosecurity in Mali and in the region.
It is based on three main axes: Support the development and implementation of relevant policies, standards and procedures
Collaborate with government departments and agencies, local and international partners (civil society organizations and other stakeholders)
Raise awareness among citizens and other stakeholders through training and awareness campaigns. 


The Malian Association for Biosafety and Biosecurity (MABB) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization established in 2011 to promote and improve biosecurity knowledge and practices across Mali and West Africa.
