  1. Fulltext. Economics of human and canine rabies elimination : guidelines for programme orientation.

    Article - En anglais


    Analysis of the present situation in canine-rabies-infected countries shows that in most cases the levels of activities for controlling the disease in man and in dogs are far too low to prevent human deaths due to rabies and to eliminate the disease in the dog population.

    This article compares the two major orientations of a rabies control programme, i.e., prevention of the disease in man by intensifying and modernizing post-exposure treatment (strategy A) and canine rabies elimination by controlling the disease in the animal reservoir (stategy B).

    The operation of both stategies (A+B) together is also analysed.
