|The illness commonly referred to as the "bird flu, "avian
flu", "avian influenza" and "bird influenza" is a global health
concern. This web site contains links to other online information resources about this illness which is also
referred to as the "H5N1 Virus".
The information contained on the other web sites, web pages, etc. that we link to will vary greatly in terms of
quality, accuracy and relevance. We have no control over the content that is provided on the pages and sites that
we provide links to and we accept no responsibility for the information contained on the web pages we link to.
This site was developed as a result of our own experience and frustrations while trying to use the Internet to
inform ourselves on the subject of the bird flu. We have found that although there are a large number of online
sources for information related to the avian flu, they are scattered and a great deal of time must be spent to
find them. There are few well organized and frequently updated starting points. Search engines are helpful but
only to a degree due to the very rapid developments with the information about the H5N1 Virus and the inherently
slow speed at which many search engines index new content.
This web site is being provided byas a convenience and service to the community at large.
We hope you find this site helpful in your quest for information about the avian infuenza.
