World Rabies Day

28 September 2011

World Rabies Day highlights the impact of human and animal rabies and promotes how to prevent and stop the disease by combating it in animals. Sponsors – the Alliance for Rabies Control and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – report that 55 000 people die every year from rabies, an average of one death every 10 minutes.

There are safe and effective vaccines available for people who have been bitten by an animal that might have the disease, but usage in developing countries is low due to the high cost.
