Abstract: In Thailand, the study of wild resident bird and migratory species indicate that wild birds infected with avian influenza may play a role in disease translocation. Countries beyond Asia may be at risk through trade or by exposure to infected carrier birds, moving seasonally along migratory flyways. The study worked to enhance at the regional level the early detection and characterization of Avian Influenza infection in migratory birds, through a coordinated surveillance network. The project strengthened networking and collaboration among member countries for preparing response to trans-boundary and newly emerging diseases that could threaten public health.
