A global One Health approach is crucial to face the spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza.

On June 7th, PREZODE hosted an online panel discussion to combine information and analyses regarding the recent spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). The current spread in animals is alarming. Its high contagion and ability to cross species barriers threaten food safety, security, and environmental and global health. Its economic and social impacts significantly burden farmers and poultry consumers, especially in the poorest communities. HPAI also has an important impact on wildlife populations, leading to substantial mortality and disruption of ecosystems.
