Few have studied the impact of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) disease shock on human nutrition. While issues related to food safety and HPAI have been addressed in some industrialized countries, little has been done to understand how the epidemic together with the government and general population responses has affected the nutrition of those living in developing countries. This paper proposes methodologies for investigating nutritional impact of an avian influenza shock for the Pro-Poor HPAI Risk Reduction Strategies Project.
