In Viet Nam, affected by HPAI H5N1, smallholder poultry producers (less than 2,000 heads) generally trade live birds in custom-made baskets. A pilot study was implemented in three provinces of Northern Viet Nam (Ha Noi, Ha Tay and Ha Nam) to identify poultry marketing practices and to assess the feasibility of establishing a formal tracing system for domestic poultry in the context of smallholder poultry value chains.
