Rabies control in rural Tanzania : optimising the design and implementation of domestic dog mass vaccination programmes
Rabies is an ancient zoonotic disease that still persists as significant public health problem affecting largely poor and marginalized people in poor countries of the developing world. The disease is
The Level of Coverage of Dog Vaccination Against Rabies in Moiben Sub-County, Uasin Gishu County, Kenya
TLDR
Dog confinement limits dog bites and hence should be enforced among dog owners, and households in Moiben Sub-county should keep the number of dogs that they can manage with regards to vaccination to be able to control rabies virus transmission.
Role of dog sterilisation and vaccination in rabies control programmes
TLDR
A comment is warranted on the statement that concurrent dog sterilisation programmes would not be helpful in reducing rabies incidence solely because ‘rabies transmission does not depend on dog population density’.
Decline in human dog-bite cases during a street dog sterilisation programme in Jaipur, India
TLDR
It is concluded that a street dog sterilisation programme can reduce human dog-bite injuries by reducing the maternal protective behaviour of the street dogs, as well as reducing the total size of the roaming dog population.
The use of immunocontraception to improve rabies eradication in urban dog populations
TLDR
Using immunocontraception alongside vaccination could improve rabies control campaigns by reducing the proportion of the population that must be treated, or reducing the necessary duration of the campaign.
Stray Dogs and Public Health: Population Estimation in Punjab, India
TLDR
There are a substantial number of stray dogs and a high number reside in rural (versus urban) areas in Punjab, and the estimated stray dog numbers pose a potential public health hazard in Punjab.
Effective vaccination against rabies in puppies in rabies endemic regions
TLDR
The authors recommend that all dogs in rabies endemic regions, including those less than three months of age, are vaccinated with high quality, inactivated vaccine.
Study on Epidemiological Trends of Canine Rabies Between 2011 and 2014 in Chennai City, South India
TLDR
Canine rabies appears to be concentrated around North and Central Chennai compared to other parts of Chennai, hence people in these areas may be considered to be at a higher risk for dog bites and educating owners about rabies vaccination is needed.

TLDR
This study confirms that all dogs (even those less than 3 months of age) must be vaccinated during mass campaigns and confirms that the expected protection conferred by locally produced potent vaccines reaches 79-99% based on the age of the dogs.

TLDR
Dog rabies is still epizootic in most countries of Africa, Asia and South America and in these countries dogs are responsible for most human deaths from the disease, which can only be achieved by mass-immunization and control of stray dog populations.
