    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
  • Series:
    Avian influenza (bird flu)
  • Description:
    This guidance, which is directed to state health departments, supplements current “Guidelines for WNV Surveillance, Prevention, and Control” (www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/resources/wnv-guidelines- aug-2003.pdf) and “An Early Detection System for Highly Pathogenic H5N1 Avian Influenza in Wild Migratory Birds: U.S. Interagency Strategic Plan” (www.doi.gov/issues/birdflu_strategicplan.pdf).

    Surveillance of dead birds for WNV has proven useful for the early detection of WNV in the United States. In recent months, it has also proven useful for the early detection of highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza A (HPAI H5N1, hereafter referred to as H5N1 virus) in Europe. Given the potential for H5N1 to infect wild birds in North America in the future, the following interim guidance is offered to support the efforts of states conducting avian mortality surveillance.
