Human Exposure to Dog Rabies

Rabies is a fatal zoonotic disease affecting mammals, including humans. Although 100% preventable by achieving at least 70% dog vaccination coverage, supplemented by availability of human vaccines, effective collaboration between stakeholders and effective reporting system, rabies is responsible for more than 55, 000 human deaths annually world-wide. It causes over 24,000 deaths a year in Africa, killing a patient, most often a child, every 20 minutes, mostly in poor rural communities.
