Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy

The CIDRAP avian flu website publishes news written by in-house journalists as well as links to free stories appearing elsewhere. It hosts lists of guidelines and selected research papers, with links to full articles where available.

 

The site's detailed, up-to-date, overview documents are particularly useful. The first of these, on agricultural and wildlife considerations, defines avian flu and describes its hosts, transmission, diagnosis, treatment and prevention amongst other topics. The second looks at the implications of bird flu for human disease. It describes available lab tests, epidemiological and clinical features and available treatments. The current status of candidate vaccines, travel recommendations and surveillance are also all considered at length.
