A little about Eliminate Rabies (AKA Where is your money going?)
Rabies is the deadliest zoonotic disease on the planet. Every year more than 59,000 people die from rabies. The deaths are mostly in Africa, India, and other parts of Asia where 99 percent of rabies cases are found. One-half of deaths are children under the age of 16.
The Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health here at the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine is working to eliminate canine rabies worldwide. The WSU Rabies Vaccination Program team vaccinates an average of 300 dogs each day in east Africa. They visit 180 villages every year in seven districts adjacent to the Serengeti National Park. Because of the program, the vaccination zone – a cordon sanitaire – is rabies free. The goal is to use the rabies-free vaccination zone as a model in other parts of Africa and Asia.
In honor of World Rabies Day - All proceeds from the SCAVMA Second Annual Rabies Run will go toward the Eliminate Rabies Program. If you would like to make an additional donation please visit: eliminaterabies.wsu.edu.For more information about the WSU Rabies Vaccination Program visit globalhealth.wsu.edu/Rabies
