American Veterinarian - Jan 3, 2018
Rabies is a global health problem transmitted primarily by dogs that causes nearly 60,000 human deaths annually. In many Western and Asian countries, combining mass dog rabies vaccinations with collaborations between human and veterinary medicine has drastically reduced human exposure to rabies. These collaborations focus on educating people about responsible pet ownership, rabies awareness, and post-exposure prophylaxis.
