World Rabies Day

World Rabies Day, which is observed annually, is celebrated to increase awareness and highlight the progress made in eliminating this terrible disease. The anniversary of Louis Pasteur’s passing, a French microbiologist and chemist, is also celebrated on 28 September.

The most fatal infectious viral disease is Rabies. It is usually caused by a virus that causes the body to produce antibodies. This preventable disease is still a problem in some African and Asian countries. It needs to be addressed by both the veterinary and medical professions. The 2016 theme was Educate. Vaccinate. Eliminate.
