Crisis Centre Launched To Combat Bird Flu

CD Crisis Centre Launched To Combat Bird Flu

"Rapid response specialists will be on deck around the clock seven days a week to fight bird flu outbreaks and other major animal health or food health-related emergencies anywhere in the world at a new Crisis Management Centre (CMC) launched by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today.

“One of the lessons FAO has learned in three years of leading the international fight against Avian Influenza is that speed is of the essence,” FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf said at the CMC’s inauguration at the Agency’s Rome headquarters. “Alert must be lightning-quick. Reaction must be immediate in combating a disease which can move across borders and continents terrifyingly fast."
