This document aims to provide a brief country economic overview of Myanmar; a review
of the poultry sector that examines production, trade, markets and consumption; information on
household income, food expenditures and poultry contribution to nutrition. Finally, it describes the
course of HPAI and applied control measures, with their concomitant impacts on livelihoods, the
poultry sector and the economy at large. This information should provide background information to
be used as additional evidence for policymaking processes at national and international levels.
