The fourth meeting of the Avian Diseases Working Group was held on 23rd of July, in Puerto Rico.

 The meeting was organised on two-days and a discussion was planned on wednesday with Mireille Mondésir, an ethnologist conducting an ethnological work on the fighting cocks tradition. The meeting focused on the risk analysis study and communication developed to prevent spread of highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza and Newcastle Disease through fighting cocks in the Caribbean, which were presented at the ISVEE 13 conference in August. Another topic tackled during the meeting was the H7N3 outbreak in Mexico and what actions the group could undertake. The group wrote some recommendations in a Press Release put on the website and sent to the Steering Committee.

Eventually, the Working Group reviewed the terms of reference of the group and developed the work plan for their future activities.
