Project General Description

The present project supports the efforts of the Government of Côte d'Ivoire and other donors to strengthen the national control and care system Avian Influenza. 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).

Project Objectives

The sectoral objective is to contribute to the efforts of the Government of Côte d'Ivoire, its partners and the Poultry Interprofession to prevent and minimize the risks of re-emergence and spread of Avian Influenza in Côte d'Ivoire, for improving food and nutritional security, preserving public health and safeguarding the national poultry industry.


The main beneficiaries are: the Ivorian Government, through the National Laboratory for Agricultural Development Support (LANADA) 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.
