Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) Program: Countering WMD Threats in Iraq
This program administers Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) threat reduction activities for Iraq in partnership with government, security, academic, public and veterinary health, and industrial communities.

This includes:

- Securing biological and chemical materials and related assets throughout the supply chain.
- Preventing WMD attacks by promoting awareness of CB and explosive threats and adoption of threat mitigation best practices.
