  • Description:
    Despite being 100% preventable, rabies kills an estimated

    55,000 people around the world each year.

    Dogs that have rabies expose 10 million people to rabies annually. Children are particularly susceptible, accounting for almost 50% of all rabies deaths. Primary prevention lies with systematic dog vaccinations, animal control, and educating those at risk. Mass vaccination of dogs and other companion animals has proven effective over large geographic areas. Nevertheless, rabies remains a serious health issue in the developing world.

    In 2007, CDC teamed with the Alliance for Rabies Control and international scientists to spearhead a World Rabies Day campaign for animal rabies control and human rabies prevention. CDC led all of the communication efforts globally for the inaugural campaign. At least 74 countries held events in conjunction with World Rabies Day, including vaccination clinics, educational sessions, museum and zoo exhibits, festivals, and dog walks. In many countries, rabies experts convened to strengthen rabies prevention and control plans, with several countries initiating national Rabies

    Control Programs in honor of the event.
