Rabies is a disease of viral origin that affects both wild and domestic animals. It is transmitted to humans by infected animals, occurring in more than 150 countries and territories. Once clinical symptoms appear, it is always fatal.
In developing countries, where it is transmitted mainly by rabid stray dogs, rabies is still considered a major public health concern and continues to cause tens of thousands deaths each year 1.
Four out of every ten deaths due to rabies are in children younger than 15 years old 2.
