Tanzania Poultry Sector Review
The outbreaks of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) that has occurred in many countries in Asia, Europe and Africa since 2003 have inevitably called for the address of the crisis at its source, which is the poultry population.
The main danger of this disease lies in the way in which humans interact with and handle the production, distribution, processing and marketing of live poultry and poultry products. The direct and indirect socio-cultural and economic impacts of disease outbreaks influence policy measures and disturb markets, causing economic losses.
This Tanzania Poultry Sector review is part of a series of Country Reviews that are commissioned by the Animal Production Service (AGAP) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for the Socio-Economics, Production & Biodiversity Unit of the Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Disease of FAO (ECTAD). This review gives information on the poultry sector at national level.
