This book targets people in countries affected by the avian influenza epidemic that is hitting especially rural people; they receive a biggest exposure to affected animal than people from the cities. This article, with its related links on the "Focus", gives practical information about bio-security at farms, villages, houses: how the avian flu is spread, about the consumption of poultry meat and eggs, are some of the most important topics. The better disease prevention is containing the infections in the animals.
