    Since 2007, multiple strains of H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) virus have entered Myanmar and caused reported outbreaks. The country is at risk for zoonotic avian influenza A (H7N9) virus incursion. Furthermore, active surveillance in live bird markets regularly detects H5N1 and H5N6 HPAI viruses and low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) H9N2 viruses. Complex diseases require multifaceted and innovative approaches that tackle the problem and mitigate their risk from various aspects. In Myanmar, the project, “Evidence-Based Risk Management along the Livestock Production and Market Chain” works collaboratively between the Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department (LBVD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (ECTAD). The project is supported by the United States Agency for International Development and the Australian Government.

    Poultry production in Southeast Asia has been challenged by various animal disease threats including highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI, also referred to as ‘bird flu’), and other emerging zoonotic and transboundary animal diseases. To mitigate the risk, emergence and spread of new pandemic disease threats, the Food and Agriculture Organization’s Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases (FAO-ECTAD) in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is implementing the project Evidence-Based Risk Management along the Livestock Production and Market Chain in the region. The project implementation began in 2017 in four countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): Cambodia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR), Myanmar and Viet Nam.

    The demand for poultry and poultry products is increasing in Luangprabang and its surrounding provinces. To meet this demand, the province now imports a large amount of poultry from neighbouring countries. Importing poses a significant risk to the vulnerable local poultry population with the introduction of threats such as transboundary animal diseases, which includes highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). Luangprabang, located in the north of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) has reported HPAI outbreaks in the past and the risk of reintroduction is always high. In order to reduce this risk, the Department of Livestock and Fisheries (DLF), the Government of Lao PDR, and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have implemented ‘evidence-based risk management along the livestock production and market chain.’ In addition, related activities were also implemented in three high-risk villages of Luangprabang with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Australian Government.
