Mass Rabies Vaccination
Rabies is among the worst zoonotic diseases in the world and responsible for an astronomical 70,000 deaths annually. The lack of control of this viral disease continues to pose global public health challenges in the developing world.
WHO has confirmed that over 90% of conﬁrmed and reported cases of human exposure to rabies are from domestic dogs in sub saharan Africa. ALL CREATURES is committed to providing safe, relatively cheap, and effective vaccination for dogs towards eradication of rabies in our target communities in Africa.
In Malawi, the districts of Mzimba, Chitipa, and Karonga through field reports, seem to be registering the highest number of rabies cases in the country. ALL CREATURES has partnered with the Community Veterinary Clinic in Florida and Humane Society International to carry out mass vaccination of dogs in Embangweni and Mzuzu City Council respectively.
