Simulation exercise: Avian influenza in Turkey

Dr Nihat Pakdil, Deputy Undersecretary, Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock of Turkey, informed the OIE that a joint real-scale simulation exercise on avian influenza will take place in Sanliurfa province from 2 October to 6 October 2017.

The overall aim of this exercise is to maintain the response skills of the Veterinary Services. The simulation will include table-top and field exercises.

The specific objectives are to:

  • test the Avian Influenza Contingency Plan and train staff on its implementation;
  • test operational response arrangements;
  • examine the liaison and interdependencies between the key operational partners; and
  • consider the impact of the disease as a zoonotic infection.
