OIE launches new AI portal:
The world organization for animal health, the OIE, has launched a new portal on avian influenza containing key facts and figures about highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), the H5N1 strain and other information on the disease. It says that the site is designed to make it easier for users to search for information on the virus, is easy to navigate, and gathers all HPAI information on the OIE website in one place. The key topics are AI prevention and control, a strategy for dealing with the virus, technical expertise and OIE codes, standards, decisions, guidelines and recommendations. It also offers global disease updates, distribution maps, media resources and has links to other websites and resources. The portal can be accessed at www.oie.int/AI.
