The MOE campaign covers 40,000 elementary and secondary schools in Thailand and will focuses on promoting frequent hand washing, rapid reporting of sick and dead poultry and other key behaviors needed to prevent the spread of the deadly H5N1 virus that causes Avian Influenza.
Humans can become ill when infected with viruses from animal sources, such as avian influenza virus subtypes H5N1 and H9N2 and swine influenza virus subtypes H1N1 and H3N2. The primary risk factor for human infection appears to be direct or indirect exposure to infected live or dead animals or contaminated environments.
