SCAR Antarctic Wildlife Health Network HPAI Database

HPAI database developed by Antarctic Wildlife Health Network (AWHN)

SCAR Antarctic Wildlife Health Network Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 Database

The Antarctic Wildlife Health Network (AWHN) has established a HPAI database to monitor and record information submitted to the AWHN on the spread of HPAI outbreaks in the sub-Antarctic and Antarctica throughout the 2023/24 Austral Summer. This database forms a central reporting database to collate detailed scientific information on all suspected and confirmed outbreaks throughout the sub-Antarctic and Antarctica. EG-ABI helped develop a web application to visualise suspected and confirmed cases. The AWHN will also provide regular updates on current cases and recommendations.
