Towards the Elimination of Rabies in Eurasia, proceedings of a joint OIE / WHO / EU international conference organised by the World Organisation for Animal Health - OIE, presents up-to-date information on rabies epidemiology in humans and animals throughout Eurasia and the most recent data on rabies virus and its structure, as well as the basic mechanisms of rabies infection.

This book is highly valuable to regulatory veterinary services, public health services, medical and veterinary practitioners, scientists and researchers interested in combating this neglected disease, which kills more than 50,000 people annually, mainly children.

Rabies elimination is at hand, through a ‘One Health’ strategic collaboration between veterinary and human health authorities, political will and community involvement, and application of the knowledge gained from this volume.
