Rabies Month in Bhutan
In the wake of the tragic death of a young woman who never sought medical attention after exposure to rabies, the Royal Government of Bhutan turned World Rabies Day 2013 into a month-long initiative to vaccinate dogs and raise public awareness.
HSI teams took the lead, reaching 6,000 animals along the southern belt of the country where the disease is prevalent.
