조류독감 캠페인을 벌이는 태국의 청소년들

2007.01.26
* Young people help spread avian influenza warnings in Thailand Uniting against a common enemy. In a province of Thailand - a country that's been hard hit by Avian Influenza - a whole community brought together in a mass campaign, to convey essential messages on ways to stay safe. And on the importance of joining prevention networks, so any outbreaks can quickly be contained. (SOUNDBITE) (Thai) Chuuan Poongchote, Bird Flu Prevention Network; “It is vital that communities know how to protect themselves, and also how to report any sick or dead birds.” For children, getting the message across about not touching dead birds, is especially important, in rural communities where families by tradition have always lived alongside their poultry. And helping to spread the word, so called Bird Flu Busters - high school students, with a high-spirited routine to get children involved. (SOUNDBITE) (Thai) Sansanee Seetangkham, Bird Flu Buster; “Children are especially at risk, because they don’t understand the dangers from sick or dead birds. Very small children need their parents to explain, so we make sure the parents understand as well.” Supporting the nationwide effort, UNICEF has now distributed materials to every classroom in Thailand, to raise awareness about the virus. (SOUNDBITE) (Thai) Wuttiisak Hemkong; “Washing my hands before eating will prevent me from getting bird flu. Also, not touching any sick or dead birds.” And in this particular province, where cock fighting is popular, it supports a passport initiative, giving all birds a travel document to keep a check on their state of health and their movement around the countryside. All ways of controlling the spread of the virus. While the mass outbreak that everyone fears hasn’t happened, campaigns like this one ensure the best chance for rural communities that would find themselves in the front line. This is Rob McBride reporting for UNICEF television. Unite for Children.
