Analyses of the Poultry Value Chain and Its Linkages and Interactions with HPAI Risk Factors in Nigeria

Abstract

Key findings in this briefing are:-

  • HPAI disease-transmission pathways are linked to the economic incentives that chain actors face.
  • Disease transmission risk is strongly related to commercial practices and trade in poultry and poultry products.
  • Consumer influences are insufficient to change governance and commercial practice.
  • Chain actors face economic incentives to conceal information that is essential for effective HPAI control.
  • Sustainable HPAI control will require improved private sector–driven coordination mechanisms that target deficient biosecurity practices in the value chain.
