This first HPAI outbreak response simulation exercise in Nepal was conducted in the high-risk district of Kaski to test and evaluate the ability of civil and technical authorities to respond effectively to an outbreak of HPAI. The event was preceded by a planning workshop. The first day involved additional orientation from the training team on exercise modalities, together with an investigation in the field of the suspect case, collection of samples, sample submission to the regional laboratory, and confirmation of a positive result by PCR at the central laboratory. The District AI committee met and the following day, the field programme declared the infected and surveillance zones and the setting up of a local disease control room, located just outside the infected zone. Control points were set up and response teams were fielded to deal with culling, disposal and decontamination, while surveillance teams scanned poultry holdings in the surveillance zone to detect secondary spread. Media briefings were given from the control room at the end of each day. On the final day, team leaders, control room staff, observers and the training team reviewed the exercise and made recommendations for future events. The exercise involved all actors who would have a role in the response to a real outbreak and was led by the Chief District Officer who as Chair of the District AI Technical Committee would coordinate the district’s response efforts. Other civil stakeholders included the Local District Development Office, police, Public Health Department, Red Cross local office, media and producer associations. Field activities were co-hosted by the local municipality, under the technical supervision of the Department of Livestock Services (DLS) and guidance of FAO AI project. Observers included the Director General-DLS, FAO Representative in Nepal, USAID AI coordinator and NGO representatives. The exercise provided valuable experience and better understanding for participants of what is involved in outbreak response, and consequently, the level of preparedness of district/regional participants was significantly enhanced. Tony Williams, FAO Chief Technical Advisor in Nepal commented There is nothing quite the same as dealing with a real outbreak but the simulation programme, which involves bringing together all the pieces of the response jigsaw in real time, provides the next best thing in preparedness preparation for the technical services, civil authorities and media management, as well as extending AI response awareness to the communities.
