    Designing and implementing livestock value chain studies: A practical aid for Highly Pathogenic and Emerging Disease (HPED) control 2012
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Value chain studies, including production system and market chain studies, are essential to value chain analysis, which when coupled with disease risk analysis is a powerful tool to identify key constraints and opportunities for disease control based on risk management in a livestock production and marketing system. Several production system and market chain studies have been conducted to support disease control interventions in South East Asia. This practical aid summarizes experiences and less ons learned from the implementation of such value chain studies in South East Asia. Based on these experiences it prioritizes the required data for the respective purpose of a value chain study and recommends data collection as well as data analysis tools.This practical aid is intended as an adjunct to the FAO value chain approach and animal diseases risk management guidelines document. Further practical advice is provided for more effective use of value chain studies in South and South East Asia as part of animal health decision support.

    Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Mexico (H7N3)
    A significant threat to poultry production notto be underestimated
    2012
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The current H7N3 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreaks occurring in Jalisco, Mexico, demonstrate the constant risk from the circulation of avian influenza viruses to poultry industries throughout the world. HPAI outbreaks in countries that have significant commercial poultry industries, with high numbers of animals living in high-density populations, can suffer rapid and severe economic losses to agro-industry and trade. Countries with weaker infrastructure might not withstand shock s to food prices and the resulting food insecurity, especially for more vulnerable households...
