Macfadden awarded subcontract from USAID, STOP AI
Macfadden was awarded a 3-year subcontract by Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI) in support of its prime task order contract with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The agency project, Stamping Out Pandemic and Avian Influenza (STOP AI), will focus on animal health aspects of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), and will provide technical resources and support services in preparedness planning; surveillance and prevention; outbreak and response; and re-infection prevention and recovery within the animal health sector, all to help ensure that HPAI does not evolve into a human health crisis.
Working with U.S. Government agencies, national governments, international and nongovernmental organizations, and a roster of deployable veterinarians and other public health experts, the project will contribute to the U.S. Government's international avian influenza response and will assist in HPAI detection and outbreak response, containment, and recovery.
Macfadden's main role on the STOP AI Team will be a focus on delivering reliable and timely logistics and operations support to facilitate and enhance international assistance to countries impacted by HPAI. In implementing the three-year contract, the STOP AI Team will draw on their worldwide network of epidemiologists, veterinary virologists, public health experts, communication strategists, laboratory diagnosticians, trainers, emergency responders, poultry specialists, and food safety experts.
