National conference on June 6

To create awareness among poultry farmers about deadly avian influenza, the High Security Animal Diseases Lab in Bhopal is conducting a national conference on June 6. The conference is open to both group and individual stakeholders in the poultry industry, mainly farmers and breeders. Dr. K. K. Kulkarni, director at HSADL, said the conference will shed light in identifying symptoms of H5N1 avian influenza, the pros and cons of vaccinating birds against the virus and other matters related to bird flu.

“We will also discuss measures that are taken after an outbreak to curtail it besides vaccination, which is officially not allowed by the government,” he said.

In addition to scientists at HSADL, international experts with experience in dealing with avian influenza are also set to participate. Those interested in participating can contact Dr. Kulkarni on 09425624964.
