14:48 | 16/03/2014

VGP – The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has passed a national plan on bird flu prevention in the 2014-2018 period. 

The plan targets to control and prevent large-scale epidemics, build avian flu-free zones, and create a foundation to get rid of highly pathogenic avian influenza A (H5N1) virus in Viet Nam since 2018.

Under the plan, the number of avian flu hotspots would be reduced. By 2015, 60% of municipal provinces and cities would become low-risk areas. By 2018, 80% of provinces and cities would become low-risk areas. By 2018, the Mekong Delta would be free from avian flu.

The five-year project would get VND 132,804 million from the state budget to purchase around 220 million of doses of vaccines./.
