Abstract* last updated: 26-JAN-2011
The objectives of the Avian Influenza Control Project are to minimize the threat in Nepal posed to humans by Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) infection and other zoonotic diseases by controlling such infections among domestic poultry and to prepare for, control, and respond to an influenza epidemic and other related infectious disease emergencies in humans. The reallocation is necessary for Department of Livestock (DOLS) to prevent and manage the potential outbreaks in coming winter months, when the Influenza A (H1N1) and Avian Influenza (H5N1) virus is most active in Nepal, Bangladesh and India. Despite the project expenditure has reached only 57 percent, DOLS indicates that the funds have already been committed to civil works and equipments with the balance of US$ 200,000 until the end of the project, i.e., July 31, 2011. The requested reallocation is, therefore, to provide continued support for field veterinary services, enhancement of laboratory capacity and project coordination unit.
