National and international stakeholders leading the fight against HPAI and other major diseases have limited expertise and training in participatory epidemiology that would enable them to pro-actively address policies and institutional challenges that inhibit their adoption. For these reasons, a Participatory Epidemiology Network for Animal and Public Health has been established by the Africa-based International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), a member of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), OIE, the African Union Inter-African Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR), the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Belgium (VSF-B) and Veterinarians Without Borders/Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Canada (VSF-C) have partnered with ILRI to establish the network, design its strategies and implement programs for training, capacity building and institutional change.
