As part of its avian influenza work in Southeast Asia, FHI 360 staff have created and cultivated an unlikely superhero, SuperChicken, a broad-breasted rooster with a familiar red cape and strong opinions about the best ways to stop the spread of bird flu. In both Cambodia and Laos, SuperChicken has appeared in public service announcements, on posters, and in booklets where he demonstrated the “hows” to preventing the avian influenza virus from appearing and spreading.  To view materials featuring SuperChicken, visit http://www.avianflu.fhi360.org/asia.htm and click on Laos or Cambodia.

AI Journalist Trainings
