FVE President Rens van Dobbenburgh welcomed more than 250 participants and shared his very personal experience of stamping-out measures, back when he was a poultry practitioner. The webinar highlighted the unprecedented biological impact of HPAI outbreaks on poultry and wild birds with transcontinental movements involving Asia, Europe, Africa, and North and South America. Ahead of the EFSA opinion on the availability of vaccines against HPAI for poultry and considering potential vaccination strategies, FVE and PVSGEU engaged scientists, regulators, poultry practitioners, and the industry in an open science-based discussion on the applications of future long-term strategies for the prevention of HPAI in clearly defined poultry populations at risk for the upcoming season 2023/2024.
