Author's note: Its incredibly rare, in fact this is the first time, I've ever written about a state's non-existing biological warfare program. Although much has been written over the last couple decades with regard to Pakistan's nuclear program and proliferation by the AQ Khan network, its apparent lack of a BW program is notable. Open source literature is rather sparse on Pakistan's biological weapon programs, largely due to the fact that Pakistan does not, in my view, posses one. While an argument can certainly be made for most states in possession of a bio-pharmaceutical infrastructure that they maintain the capability to do so, it appears Pakistan has chosen not to pursue this path.
Indeed, Pakistan's focus seems to be on preventing proliferation and protecting their national public health security from external BW threats. Although dual-use is a problem for any nation with a bio-technology infrastructure, the Pakistani government has worked to increase awareness of the threat of proliferation. NTI states:
