dc.description.abstractThe WHO South-East Asia (‎SEA)‎ Region accounts for 45% of the global human rabies burden. More than 1.5 billion people in the Region are at potential risk of infection. Each year more than four million people receive at least one dose of post-exposure rabies vaccination. Although rabies is a 100% preventable disease and the tools and methods for rabies prevention and control are well known, it is still a significant public health problem in many countries of the SEA Region. Some countries have a comprehensive rabies control programme but it is a neglected disease in others. Considering the importance of consolidating achievements in rabies control in Member Countries, the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia has developed a strategic framework for elimination of human rabies transmitted by dogs in the Region. This will be the key document to aid in the elimination of dog-mediated human rabies within the SEA Region.en_US
