Workshop for a Livestock Sector Strategy for Avian Influenza Control and Eradication in Viet Nam

   3/30/2006

Background Following the great success of control efforts against avian influenza in recent months, and the confidence that the international community has shown in Beijing in Viet Nam’s commitment to HPAI control, MARD, in collaboration with FAO, has identified the need to quickly proceed with detailed strategy planning for the livestock sector. During 2005, the Government in collaboration with UN Agencies developed a plan for six-month emergency phase of avian influenza control and this is now coming to an end with a very satisfactory outcome, with no outbreaks of disease in poultry for more than two months and no human cases recorded for over three months. The intention was for this to be followed with preparation and planning for a longer-term capacity building support (18 months). In January 2006, the Government, with support from the World Bank and UN Agencies developed an Integrated National Plan for avian influenza control which identified the elements for a medium-term response. A draft strategy outline has been developed which elaborates on these elements. The workshop Hanoi 27 and 28 February – The workshop was held under the authorization of the Minister of MARD, to get comments and recommendations from consultants and experts from MARD, FAO and other related agencies to: 1. Review progress with HPAI control in Viet Nam and its impact on producers and consumers. 2. Consider the outcomes of epidemiological, poultry production and socio- economic studies that have been undertaken, draw conclusions and identify gaps in knowledge. 3. Consider the draft strategy that has been developed and the assumptions on which it has been based. 4. Identify options for modifying the strategy, taking into account disease control needs, socio-economic effects (especially on poor farmers) and long-term goals for the poultry industry. 5. Make recommendations for finalising a strategy and identify the technical issues that need to be addressed in the forward planning process. The workshop was regarded as an important step in elaborating the livestock component of the Integrated National Plan.
