Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Since 2008, seven countries from five continents have experienced highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreaks in poultry due to viruses unrelated to H5 Goose/Guangdong lineage viruses. These have covered a range of virus subtypes and affected different production species from chickens to ostriches. Each outbreak subchapter describes in detail the disease presentation, diagnosis, control, and relevant epidemiology. The level of spread, economic impacts, and implications for human infection are also described.
