Methods to combat the infectious avian diseases that are hazardous to humans will be the main item on the agenda of the 2nd international veterinary congress on poultry farming. The congress opens here on Tuesday. Sergei Dankvert, head of the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phitosanitary Inspection (Rosselkkhoznadzor), has told Itar-Tass, "The main task of the congress is to map out measures to localise a disease, prevent it from penetrating commercial poultry farming and protect people's health". The implementation of the decisions of the International Epizootic Bureau (IEB) and its regional organisations to prevent the spread of bird flu will be one of the principal matters discussed at the congress, a Rosselkhoznadzor official said. The standard package of IEB recommendations includes, in particular, measures to prevent contact between poultry and wildfowl, conduct mass vaccination of poultry in the private sector, and establish a sanitary barrier toprevent thevirus from reaching poultry factory-farms. Congress organisers from the Russian Ministry of Agriculture said, "About 700 virologists, ornithologists, veterinarians, and directors of large poultry farms from the United States, France, Germany, Holland, Georgia, and Kazakhstan will examine Russian and foreign experience in preventing and combating bird flu". Exhibitions of veterinary drugs, equipment, feed and fodder additives for poultry will be held within the framework of the congress. Agriculture Minister Alexei Gordeyev has pointed out, "This year, just as last year, we shall seek without any rush to cope with the bird flu problem". Yevgeny Voronin, rector of the Moscow Academy of Veterinary Science, has pointed out, for his part, "Everything necessary to repel the bird flu threat is available in Russia: vaccine, diagnostic drugs, and essential techniques. The matter depends only on proper arrangements for this kind of work and on its monitoring."
