Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza position statement

The Action for Animal Health coalition has released a position statement on Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI, H5N1) that calls on multilateral organisations, governments and donors to build strong animal health systems that can prevent and detect cases as quickly as possible.

In the statement, the coalition states that stakeholders must now shift to prevention of spillover of zoonotic diseases through increased long-term investment in building fit-for-purpose animal health systems that can detect and respond to outbreaks of any zoonotic or animal disease in its earliest stage.
