ABSTRACT

Over the last 3-4 years FAO’s role and priority has evolved from a predominantly emergency response to long term capacity building to improve surveillance, early detection and response in HPAI-infected and at-risk countries. FAO has also broadened its HPAI programme to include other EIDs and adopted a One Health approach to promote greater multisectoral and multidisciplinary participation. This transition provides an opportunity to reflect on the work done so far in HPAI control in the Asia region, and identify achievements, success stories, challenges, lessons learned and impact. This document represents the outcome of this exercise and provides in one place the knowledge, insights and recommendations of experts with first-hand knowledge and over eight years of experience in dealing with H5N1 HPAI in Asia.
