Rabies still kills

Rabies is one of the most deadly zoonoses. Each year, it kills nearly 60,000 people worldwide, mostly children in developing countries. More 

Over 95% of human cases of rabies are due to dog bites and unlike many other diseases, we already have all the tools needed to eradicate it.

The OIE provides science-based standards, guidelines and recommendations for the control of the disease in animals and to prevent its spread as well as standards for the diagnosis of rabies and the production of high quality veterinary vaccines. More

Through its global network of 311 Reference Laboratories and Collaborating Centres, the OIE provides policy advice, strategy design and technical assistance for the diagnosis, control and eradication of rabies. More

The international community is mobilizing, because nowadays, there must be no more deaths from rabies. More
