Abstract

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) first emerged in Southeast Asia in 2003–2004. Initially, containment policies ranged from focusing on mass culling (Thailand) and vaccination (Vietnam) to the elimination of all wet markets (Hong Kong). Although these measures were applied with varied success, it has become clear that a new generation of policies is necessary to address the infrequent, but continued, outbreaks of an apparently endemic disease. The nature of these circumstances require that the new generation of policies focus on long term adjustment and take into account acceptable risk levels, farmer livelihoods, and financial sustainability. It is within this context that we look at geographical potential for medium scale contract farming in the informal poultry sector in Thailand.
