    Thursday 28 sept : SCIENTIFIC SEMINAR Pasteur Cambodia : “Following the movement of middlemen, does it help in the context of avian influenza? ”

    “Following the movement of middlemen, does it help in the context of avian influenza? “

    Summary : 

    Live poultry trade is the main driver for the spread of Avian Influenza Viruses (AIVs) in Cambodia. Past studies have described live poultry markets as hubs for the circulation and emergence of AIVs.  Even though middlemen have been identified as the main poultry vectors between the production sites and markets, little is known regarding the poultry supply chain upstream from those markets. Therefore, we propose to develop a new tool to investigate the live poultry supply chain in Cambodia through middlemen’s movements in an attempt to understand AIV circulation and population dynamics better.
