It aims to support the implementation of urgent measures to combat and prevent this epizootic which is a serious threat for the national economy as well as for the entire sub-region of West Africa. The operation specifically targets two mutually complementary components, namely: improving animal health and public health by: (i) strengthening the diagnostic capacity of Avian Influenza through the upgrading of the Bouaké Regional Laboratory of the National Laboratory for Agricultural Development Support (LANADA) and the training of the managers and technicians working there; (ii) improvement of hygienic conditions for poultry killings in 10 markets (sanitation of the main slaughterhouses, acquisition of equipment, disinfection consumables, incineration and landfill equipment, training of poultry industry stakeholders in hygiene matters, farm biosecurity, markets and transport of poultry and poultry products and good practices to be observed in markets to contain the risks of propagation of the avian influenza virus and prevent its transmission to humans).
The main objective of the proposed project is to help fight the spread of bird flu and fight against a possible human pandemic in Côte d'Ivoire.
The main beneficiaries are: the Ivorian Government and animal health and human health managers and technicians; the main slaughterhouses (markets), the actors in the poultry sector and the populations of Côte d'Ivoire in general.
