The main goal of the training is to instruct the local population on the dangers and protection from the dangerous bird flu virus.

The next training session will be held by the UN Childrens Fund to be held in Lankaran on August 17.

It should be noted that three out of the total five persons killed by bird flu were residences of the village in the Salyan District.
