This short video shows the devastating impact of rabies – and how Mission rabies aims to eradicate it by 2030.


Rabies is a fatal zoonosis, mainly transmitted through bites of dogs infected with rabies. The disease occurs in over 150 countries wide, with over one third of victims (25,000) in India, in particular in children. The disease is entirely preventable by vaccinating dogs and by a solid epidemiological approach.
