Avian influenza refers to the disease caused by infection with avian (bird) influenza (flu) Type A viruses. These viruses occur naturally among wild aquatic birds worldwide and can infect domestic poultry and other bird and animal species. Avian influenza A viruses are classified into the following two categories: low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) A viruses, and highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) A viruses. H5, H7 and H9 are the most known HPAI viruses.

H9N2 is a subtype of avian influenza virus that primarily affects birds, including chickens, turkeys, and ducks. However, it can also infect humans and other mammals. The virus was first isolated in 1966 in terns in South Africa.
H9N2 virus is widespread in many countries, particularly in Asia and the Middle East, and has been detected in domestic poultry and wild birds. The virus has also been detected in pigs, cats, and dogs. Human infections with H9N2 have been reported in several countries.
Nowadays, due to ongoing circulation of various strains (H5N1, H5N2, H5N8, H7N8, H9N2, etc), outbreaks of avian influenza continue to be a global public health concern. The OIE’s objectives of promoting transparency and understanding of the global animal disease situation continue as a priority of our organisation in the face of this situation, in order to protect public health, and to ensure the safety of world trade in animals and animal products.
