Until December 2008 the cases amount up to 139 people with 113 people of them were die. The purpose of this research was to understand risk factors connected with Avian Influenza A H5N1 occurrence in Indonesia. The research was take place in Referral Hospitals and in about 100 m radius around the place of cases.

All respondents must fill a questionares which contains questions which deal with the occurrence of Avian Influenza A H5N1. Statistically, the result shows that is environments variables are not significantly different occurrence of cases, the risk factors P Value 0.057 and the Odd ratio 2.357. While respondents on contacts with sudden death of poultry had significant different with their risk factors to the occurrence of cases, P value < 0.001 and Odd Ratio 72.61. From this research can assumed contact with sudden death poultry have risk factors of occurrence of Avian influenza A H5N1 72.61 times, compared to the controls. This research result was expected to give on input to the Health Program in making policy to execute control of Avian Influenza disease A H5N1 in Indonesia.
