This publication is an invaluable source of useful information for anyone involved in poultry-keeping and animal health practices. Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) represents a threat to poultry industries worldwide and to people's livelihoods, and a potential threat to human health. The aim of this manual is to help national animal authorities and other stakeholders prepare for a possible incursion of HPAI, detect diseases as soon as possible and respond as rapidly as possible to contain the disease. The manual offers practical advice on disease identification, pathology and diagnosis; detection, response and control strategies; and biosecurity measures to prevent outbreaks.
