베트남의 조류인플루엔자 예방활동(2)

2007.01.11
Asset Name : Information a potent weapon in Vietnam’s fight against bird flu Nguyen Thi Tuyet remembers well when avian flu swept through her village. The outbreaks in 2004 and 2005 led to the culling of more than 11 thousand chickens in her commune alone, and more than two million across the province. Tuyet’s small farm of 100 chickens was spared, but the effect on the poultry market was disastrous. Prices plunged and she could hardly make a living. Now she lives in fear of the virus’ return. Nguyen Thi Tuyet, Poultry farmer: “We are aware, and we are afraid of the return of another outbreak. We think it is going to cause a lot of problems for us, especially in terms of economic loss.” Poultry is a major industry in Vietnam, with more than 250 million ducks, geese and chickens. While the government is encouraging the development of larger farms, most of the country’s poultry farmers are like Tuyet, keeping small, backyard flocks, with animals often roaming freely through human living spaces. UNICEF, funded by a grant from the Japanese government, is working with the Vietnamese government to raise awareness in communities like this about how to prevent the spread of avian flu. Large billboards in urban areas and on major roadways call for thorough cooking of chicken and proper hygiene. While public service announcements on national and local radio and television urge poultry farmers to ensure their animals are vaccinated and kept in a separate space from humans, and to wash and disinfect themselves thoroughly after contact with poultry. SOUNDBITE (VIETNAMESE) Nguyen Quang Thuan, Director, Health Education Center, Vietnam Ministry of Health: “Personal hygiene is very important – not only to prevent avian flu, but also other diseases. So at the Ministry of Health, we’ve been raising awareness about personal hygiene, especially hand washing which is one of the ways avian flu can be prevented.” It is a message many poultry farmers here have been quick to accept. Having already endured an outbreak, they know first hand how avian flu can devastate lives and livelihoods. In Ha Tay province, Vietnam, this is Steve Nettleton reporting for UNICEF Television.
