Abstract: Backyard poultry are especially important for food security, biodiversity, tradition and lifestyle conservation of Thai people. It is estimated that there are 90-120 million backyard chickens in Thailand, with 3-5 hens per household, freely roaming in the household area. The project investigates current knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of the farmers and ways to improve prevention and control of Avian influenza (AI) infection in humans. Campaigning AI through schools is found to be an efficient way to communicate information, as activities easily draw attention from parents. Strengthening AI networking based on school activities to revise KAP on AI should be performed regularly.
