Rabies control is a dynamic field, this work compiles the latest knowledge on the subject, and is an invaluable reference source for future developments in the control of rabies in animal reservoirs. The effective application of these strategies, described here, will contribute to making rabies a thing of the past.
Provides scientists, clinicians, veterinarians, policy-makers and stakeholders involved in rabies control with an up-to-date review of the rabies situation worldwide, from a ‘One Health’ perspective. Rabies is one of the most feared known human diseases and the authors claim that substantial developments have been made in recent years in reducing its burden. This publication discusses the global strategies used for the elimination of terrestrial rabies from reservoir populations, focusing on the elimination of dog-mediated rabies. It considers regional strategies for rabies control and also shows how intergovernmental organisations, such as the OIE, the WHO and the FAO, are working together in a collegiate manner to help to fight the disease worldwide. The adoption of effective strategies against rabies is especially important in regions where its control is still neglected and where the disease remains endemic.
