Poland: Poland Officially Free from Avian Influenza

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   PL2023-0024

On August 2, 2023, Poland regained the status of a country officially free from Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI). In 2023, 48 commercial poultry farms and 12 backyard farms were infected with HPAI, located in nine Polish provinces. HPAI outbreaks led to culling of over one million birds. Slaughter duck farms and slaughter turkey farms were the most impacted, accounting for almost 70 percent of HPAI-culled birds. HPAI-free status will allow Poland to resume exports of poultry meat to non-European markets, which were restricted when the disease was present in the country.
