This is the third in a series of reports to document global progress with control of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) and preparedness for the next influenza pandemic. The report covers developments over the past two years, with a specific focus on the last six months (January - June 2007). It provides (a) an analysis of efforts made and financial assistance provided to date, and (b) an assessment of progress in the capacity of nations to respond to HPAI and their preparations for the next influenza pandemic. The report considers the implications of progress to date for future national and international investments in animal and human health security. The results presented in the report indicate that substantial progress has been made in the initial - emergency - phase of the global response to HPAI and threats to public health. The report includes analyses of data and presentation of information in 5 subject categories: (a) global financial and technical assistance; (b) animal health; (c) the capacity to respond to human health threats; (d) pandemic readiness; and (e) communications. Material in the report is presented sequentially: Chapter 2 contains an overview of international financial, technical and political assistance provided to date. Chapters 3 - 6 present available information on outcomes that have been achieved. Chapter 7 includes an interpretation of the results, seeks to assess the impact of external assistance on national capacities and global readiness, and concludes with points for action.
