This article published in BMC Public health addresses the lack of understanding of the inter-play of drivers, conditions and motives that influence preventive behaviors at the household level regarding H5N1 avian influenza virus. A Composite Risk Index (CRI) was developed to inform decision-makers of critical epidemiological, livelihood, food security and risk perception factors that were found to contribute to A(H5N1) vulnerability at the community level. Poverty, widowhood and lack of education were among the factors associated with high risk scores. The aim of the tool is to enable targeting those communities that are likely to be highly vulnerable to A(H5N1) outbreaks and where control and awareness-raising efforts are expected to be most effective.
