Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 Monitoring Project

The Antarctic Wildlife Health Network (AWHN) has established a HPAI database to monitor and record information submitted to the AWHN on the spread of HPAI outbreaks in the sub-Antarctic and Antarctica throughout the 2023/24 Austral Summer.

The AWHN will also provide regular updates on current cases and recommendations, a visual display of all cases via MAPPPD ( and regular bulletins.
