Rabies is a neglected tropical disease that is virtually 100 per cent fatal once symptoms emerge. The Covid-19 pandemic has diverted resources from tackling rabies in Southeast Asia, and the disease has spread to areas where it has not previously been considered a major healthcare issue.

This white paper explores strategies to eliminate rabies and achieve the global strategic goal to end dog-mediated human rabies by 2030, in Southeast Asia.
