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.
