Rabies kills someone
every 9 minutes.

That’s 59,000 people every year.

Our work isn't done yet.

Rabies is 100% preventable. In the U.S. and many European countries, a dog bite rarely leads to death. But in many countries, even a superficial dog bite or scratch can lead to a disease that is nearly 100% fatal once symptoms manifest. 

Rabies is one of the world’s oldest diseases, but remains a daily threat to millions around the world.

It doesn’t have to be this way.
