Description:Captured in September, 2014, by Ally Sterman, OC Hubert Fellow, Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine, this image depicts a young dog resting atop a mound of dead grass, as it awaited a rabies vaccination at a local canine rabies vaccination clinic in Ethiopia. Ethiopia has reported some of the highest rates of human rabies deaths in the world. Recent collaborations with the Ethiopian government, Gondar University, Ohio State University, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are working to put an end to canine rabies in Ethiopia.
“Through the support of committed expertise from CDC, a rabies diagnostic laboratory was established and veterinarians were trained on safe animal capture and humane euthanasia of rabies suspect dogs. To further enhance the chances of success for this rabies elimination project, a rabies task force was created, bringing people from agriculture, human health, and academia together to develop strategies to combat this disease. Over the coming years these many collaborators will continue to enhance components of effective rabies control, and by the next World Rabies Day, perhaps the success story will be the establishment of the first rabies free zone in Ethiopia.” (See link below)
