Elimination of canine rabies

Rabies can be prevented by vaccination. Vaccination of dogs is the most cost-effective way to prevent human rabies. Vaccination for dogs can not only eliminate the death rate of rabies, but also reduce the need for prevention after contact with patients bitten by dogs.

Raise awareness of rabies and prevent dog bites.

Human preventive immunization


The incubation period of rabies is usually 2-3 months, ranging from less than one week in the short to one year in the long, depending on factors such as rabies virus entrance location and rabies virus load. The initial symptom of rabies is fever, and the wound site is often painful or has abnormal or unexplained quivering pain, tingling pain or burning pain (abnormal sensation). With the spread of the virus in the central nervous system, it develops into fatal progressive brain and spinal cord inflammation.

The following two situations may occur:

The symptoms of manic rabies patients are hyperfunction, restlessness, fear of water, and sometimes fear of wind. A few days later, the patient died of heart and lung failure.

Paralytic rabies accounts for about 20% of all human deaths. Compared with manic rabies, the course of disease is less severe and usually longer. Starting from the bite or scratch site, the muscles gradually become paralyzed, then the patient gradually falls into coma and finally dies. Paralytic rabies is often misdiagnosed, resulting in underreporting of rabies.

Global events

Joint Cooperation Platform against Rabies: Achieving Zero Human Rabies Death by 2030 WHO, OIE, FAO and the Global Rabies Control Alliance began to work together in 2015 to formulate a common strategy for achieving "zero human rabies deaths by 2030" and to establish a "joint fight against rabies" cooperation platform.
