Can rabies be eradicated? The epidemiological basis for urban control in Venezuela


Health Policy and Planning 7(3): 279-283
Can rabies be eradicated? The epidemiological basis for urban control in Venezuela
Densely populated Latin-American cities have a high incidence of canine rabies and a consequent human hazard. This report offers a model for planning an antirabies campaign. Undertaken in the city of Maracaibo in Venezuela in 1985, the guidelines include the observation of dog population density and distribution, their age, sex and whether owned or stray.
