4 New Activities of Veterinary Services Australia: Wildlife Health Information System (WHIS), database on information on wildlife disease events (June 2005) Aquaplan 2005-2010 to maximise ability to control aquatic animal diseases (July 2005) Cambodia: High level task force to control HPAI Pakistan: Active and passive disease surveillance for AI and other major animal diseases. India: Network of laboratories: 250 State, 5 regional and 1 central in Izatnagar. Vietnam: National strategic plan for strengthening of Veterinary services and a national AI vaccination programme adopted.
