The disease has a massive impact on poultry production. HPAI types lead to trade restrictions, food shortages and industry job losses. LPAI causes severe performance losses in growing flocks leading to reduced productivity and profitability. Vaccination has become increasingly important in avian influenza control as a part of a multi-pronged approach, complementing the massive efforts expended in controlling the disease. Read more...

Control Strategies against Avian Influenza Since 1959, 42 epizootics of high pathogenicity avian influenza (HPAI) have occurred (Figure 1). Thirty-five of these epizootic HPAI viruses were geographically-limited (mostly to single countries), involved farm-to-farm spread and were eradicated from poultry by stamping-out programs; i.e. the HPAI viruses did not circulate in wild migratory birds. However, five outbreaks having also used vaccination as a management tool in addition to stamping-out strategies. An H5N1 HPAI virus emerged in 1996 in a goose in Guangdong China (Gs/GD lineage), and unlike the viruses in the other 39 HPAI outbreaks, has caused deaths in wild birds, poultry and humans, and spread to over 70.
