Regional: Prevention and Control of Avian Influenza in Asia and the Pacific.

Sovereign Project | 39662-012

Summary

This RETA is part of a $38 million Regional Project, Prevention and Control of Avian Influenza in Asia and the Pacific approved by the ADB Board on 13 March 2006. A comprehensive description of the regional project can be found at http: www.adb.org Documents ADBBO RETA 39662022.ASP The Project aims to make significant contribution to reducing the prevalence of avian influenza among poultry and reducing the vulnerability of human population to influenza. This will be achieved through preventing the infection at source by supporting systems and incentives for early reporting of avian influenza outbreaks and rapid containment. The Project will also support regional activities to improve the reporting and management of human influenza cases through regional interagency collaboration, regional cooperation in sharing information and upgraded national capacity.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Avian Influenza, influenza pandemic, and other emerging communicable diseases pose immediate challenges to the region and require immediate action. Action however must be coordinated: avian influenza and other (human and animal) communicable diseases do not respect borders and thus require collaboration among neigboring countries to prevent and control the spread of the disease. Fighting avian influenza and other communicable diseases requires actions at several levels: at the country level (national and local governments), and at the regional and global levels, to support multi country initiatives and collaboration. Fighting avian influenza requires a multisector approach, and includes efforts (i) to control avian influenza in the bird population poultry (ii) to prevent the avian H5N1 virus from mutating into a human transmissible human virus that may cause a pandemic influenza and (iii) efforts to delay (to increase preparedness), mitigate and recover from an influenza pandemic.
Impact Reduced social and economic disruption caused by avian and human influenza outbreaks in Asia and the Pacific region
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Containing infection at source from H5N1 avian influenza and Enhanced preparedness for a potential human influenza pandemic in A&P region
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. Regional capacity building through strengthened national capacities for containing and preventing avian influenza outbreaks through support from ASEAN and FAO and prepare for a potential human influenza pandemic with support from WHO

2. Regional coordination through improved coordination between affected countries and technical agencies for regular exchange of epidemiological information, laboratory specimens, and supplies; rapid regional field response and containment capacity; and enhanced risk communication efforts in all countries

3. Avian influenza response facility through a flexible and fast-disbursing mechanism in place to address the needs of an evolving and uncertain avian influenza epidemic, particularly to support regional

stockpiles of drugs and equipment, national efforts for containing avian influenza outbreaks, and national

response to potential pandemic

4. Project administration where ADB develops capacity to administer an investment project with a number of different implementing agencies
