Togo adopts new plan to fight avian flu

(Togo First) - Togo recently adopted a new strategy to fight avian flu. Co-validated by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the new mechanism was discussed with actors of the poultry sector last week. 

The discussions came after the ministry of agriculture announced the ban of poultry imports from six European countries hit by the flu. 

In detail, the strategy consists of reinforcing biosecurity on poultry farms, across Togo’s five regions. The latter, it should be recalled, recorded five consecutive avian flu outbreaks between 2017 and 2018. 

Togo aims to triple its poultry meat output to 60,000 tons.
