Avian Influenza Preparedness Workshop
Through a two-day workshop, experts from seven nations of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) took stock of past activities, shared their latest scientific findings and reviewed best practices to enhance their abilities to detect and respond to H7N9 and other avian influenza viruses. National experts in wildlife, laboratory diagnostics and animal health management met with contingency planners, risk managers and risk communicators from FAO to build a common understanding of the best ways to analyze and reduce avian influenza risks. A key feature of the workshop was to build relationships among countries and across areas of expertise in order to improve a regional approach.
