World Rabies Day

Working together to make rabies history!

Why is rabies important?


Rabies is entirely preventable through vaccination. Rabies kills at least 55,000 people annually, or one person every 10 minutes. Rabies impacts animal health and welfare. Sustained elimination of dog-to-dog transmission of rabies has been demonstrated over large geographic areas. The methodical use of proven techniques can lead to global elimination of the major source of human rabies.
