In this chapter, we present the surveillance of a zoonosis in Vietnam, the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). Birds are the natural hosts for avian influenza (AI) viruses and some subtypes, such as H5N1 and H7N9, can be transmitted to human with severe consequences in term of morbidity and mortality. We illustrate how an integrated approach to health applied to zoonosis is achieved by using participatory modeling and a DEVS approach.
