All four pandemic influenza strains in the past century have had an avian origin, making avian influenza viruses (AIVs) a particular global health concern. The major route of AIV transmission to humans is through direct or indirect exposure to live poultry. Exposure to AIVs in the general population in Bangladesh is likely high, given that greater than 90% of poultry and poultry products are marketed through live poultry markets. In this talk, I will present the method and results of a population-based survey conducted in 2019 measuring exposure to live poultry in urban Bangladesh and uptake of prevention practices.
