COUNTRY PROGRAM

 The Avian and Human Influenza Control and Preparedness Emergency Project is currently in the pipeline and is expected to cost a total of US$11 million. The project’s overall development objective is to minimize the threat posed to humans and the poultry sector by AHI infection in Cambodia, and to prepare for, control, and respond if necessary to a human influenza pandemic.

More specifically, the project will seek to:

  1. reduce losses of livelihoods of commercial and backyard poultry growers, as well as damages to the poultry industry, by containing the spread of the disease in animals,
  2. prevent or limit human morbidity and mortality by diminishing the viral load in the environment and stemming opportunities for human infection; and
  3. prevent or curtail macroeconomic disruption and losses by reducing the probability of a human pandemic.
