Rabies is a vaccine-preventable viral disease which occurs in more than 150 countries and territories. Rabies is an infectious viral disease that is almost always fatal following the onset of clinical symptoms. In up to 99% of cases, domestic dogs are responsible for rabies virus transmission to humans. It is spread to people through bites or scratches, usually via saliva. Every year, more than 29 million people worldwide receive a post-bite vaccination. This is estimated to prevent hundreds of thousands of rabies deaths annually.
