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.

Oped - To Prevent the Next Pandemic, Follow the Science

Science is crucial to improving pandemic preparedness and prevention. It not only deepens our understanding of pathogen transmission and containment but also provides us with the flexibility required to adapt to changing circumstances. Relying on scientific evidence enables us to contain risks at the local level, minimize the delay between early warning and action, ensure the effectiveness and reliability of control measures, and expedite the development and deployment of safe treatments, thereby safeguarding public health. Read the call to action we publish today, jointly written by the PREZODE consortium, Marisa Peyre with Justin Vaïsse (Forum de Paris sur la Paix), Peter Sands (The Global Fund), and signed by high-level international scientists, decision-makers, civil society organizations, private actors, and international donors.
