Excellent egg and poultry biosecurity is proven to be the most critical tool in helping to prevent a wide range of avian disease problems and can even help egg businesses avoid infection during severe avian influenza outbreaks.
Working in partnership with our Avian Influenza Global Expert Group, we have developed a range of practical resources to support egg businesses in preventing widespread disease outbreaks, by implementing strict egg and poultry biosecurity, and preventative disease control measures.
Avian Influenza Global Expert Group
The Avian Influenza Global Expert Group was established in September 2015 and brings together top scientists and experts from around the world to propose practical solutions to combat avian influenza in the short, medium and long term.
The group contains senior representatives from the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), world class scientists and industry representatives. Priority has been given to highlighting the huge importance of biosecurity in preventing the initial outbreak and reducing subsequent transmission.Find out more
