Abstract

Since its emergence, HPAI H5N1 strain has attracted considerable public and media attention because the virus has been shown to be capable of causing fatal disease in humans. Although there is fear that the virus may mutate into a strain capable of sustained human-to-human transmission, the greatest impact to date has been on the highly diverse poultry industries in affected countries. In response to this, policies against HPAI have so far focused on implementing prevention, control, and eradication measures in poultry populations, with more than 175 million birds culled in Southeast Asia alone.
