This paper summarises the results of several studies undertaken to investigate the spread of equine influenza (EI) virus in Australia in 2007, and to evaluate the outbreak management and response. In particular, the paper discusses the role of on-farm biosecurity, meteorological and other factors in preventing or facilitating the spread of virus onto horse premises during the early phases of the outbreak. In addition, the paper evaluates horse owners’ perceptions of biosecurity and management of the outbreak.
