As of now, the movement study of the virus within poultry species and human host factors that could facilitate likelihood of transmission to human where backyard poultry is common. The result of a pilot knowledge-attitudes-practice (KAP) study (whose project synopsis, description of the study areas and proposed study timeline are provided here) shows that despite widespread knowledge on avian influenza, most rural Cambodians still have high level of at-risk poultry handling. The likelihood of transmission risk of human populations is unknown and needs to be assessed.
