APHIS Veterinary Services continues to work with state and industry partners to mitigate trade impacts caused by highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and to plan for possible detections in the fall. Summaries for two recent meetings on these topics are now available on the APHIS website.

The summary of the International Conference on Avian Influenza and Poultry Trade, held June 22 - 24, 2015, in Baltimore, provides conclusions and recommendations for key issues common to trading partners affected by avian influenza. APHIS will provide full proceedings from the meeting in the near future. 

APHIS has also posted a report of the HPAI fall planning workshop that was held in Riverdale, MD, on June 30 and July 1, 2015. This report gives an overview of the discussions held at the workshop, focusing on the following areas: biosecurity, depopulation and disposal (includes cleaning/disinfection and indemnity), diagnostics, and vaccination and trade.
