이집트의 조류독감 예방 교육 프로그램

* Asset Name : Hygiene education campaign battles spread of avian influenza in Egypt * Shoot Date: March 2007 A climb to the rooftops hasn't always been a part of Wafaa Ibrahim's daily routine. But for months now, it's been here that she's had to keep her ducks and chickens, and where she must come to feed and look after them….. Wearing a mask for her face wasn't always necessary either, nor the careful washing routine that she performs before returning to her apartment below. But with Egypt increasingly threatened by bird flu virus, Wafaa knows she can take no chances. SOUNDBITE: WAFAA IBRAHIM, HOUSEWIFE: The first I heard about Avian Flu was on television, when there were cases in foreign countries. Then when I heard it had arrived in Egypt, I started taking precautions of my own accord – like keeping the birds up here on the roof, and making sure the children didn’t go near them. The additional hygiene precautions that Wafaa now follows are the result of awareness-raising sessions like this one, in her own home. Under a project supported by UNICEF, community health workers go house-to-house, teaching women and girls – who, are usually the ones responsible for looking after the poultry -- how to protect themselves against a potentially lethal virus. Simple tools like a flip chart show clearly, for example, the safe way to dispose of dead birds. Schools are the other prime focus of the awareness campaign. For many Egyptian families, poultry are a vital source of income and nutrition, and several children have already fallen victim to bird flu. Knowledge is the best way of ensuring that these youngsters stay healthy. SOUNDBITE (Arabic) AHMED SALAH, SCHOOL PUPIL: I know that avian flu is spread through migrating birds. If someone handles birds they should wash their hands properly afterwards. Despite the growing risks, the breeding and trading of live poultry is a vital part of the national economy here. And as new cases of human infection continue to surface, the awareness raising campaign is being stepped up across the country -- recognition of the menace the virus now poses to birds and humans alike.
