Abstract:

There are four priorities i.e., report, cook, separate and wash for preventing Avian Influenza (A I) virus transmission from poultry-to-poultry, poultry-to-animal, and poultry to human at the community level. Unfortunately, caging and separating poultry were still rarely performed by poultry owners at Indonesia. Therefore, survey of poultry caging and poultry separation conducted in Bandung district where highest incidence and prevalence of human cases of AI occur. The objectives of this survey were to determine how poultry death rate influenced by caging and poultry separation behaviors (separate between different species and ages, segregation during restocking). This research uses survey methods with household who kept poultry and household where sick or died poultry found as unit of analysis. Data obtained by in-depth interview by using the interview guidelines covering aspects: issues related to sick or death of poultry, caging habits, separation of different poultry species and age and also segregation during restocking. Result showed that poultry owners in the area by high poultry death rate; Panyirapan (13.19%) and Soreang (9.52%); tend to free ranging the birds; Panyirapan (54.54%), Soreang (72.72%). In addition, only 9.09% poultry owners in Panyirapan doing separation between different species, age and segregation during restocking, while poultry owners in Soreang unfortunately never separate among them (0%).
