World rabies day: “Rabies: Facts, not Fear”

September 28 is World Rabies Day, a global health observance started in 2007 to raise awareness about rabies. This year’s theme “Rabies: Facts, not Fear”, focuses on sharing facts about rabies and dispelling myths or misconceptions.

Scientists have shown that once 70% of dogs are vaccinated, rabies can be successfully controlled in an area and human deaths can be prevented. Other measures include educating families and communities about responsible pet ownership and supporting the humane management of stray animals, mainly dogs.
