Why we must eliminate rabies

Although no longer a problem in large parts of the world, rabies still causes more than 55,000 deaths per year, many of them children. Vaccination is the simple way to prevent this terrible problem and this is what afya is doing. Join the fight

Our opportunity to eliminate rabies

Rabies is almost completely confined to Africa and Asia. Animal populations form a reservoir for the disease with domestic dogs transmitting most human cases through bites or scratches. Highly effective canine vaccines are available and the targeted administration of these can and will bring an end to this unnecessary disease. Join the fight.
