50 years in the fight against infectious diseases 1967 – 2017

Partner Event

3rd MEEREB : Middle East & Eastern Europe Rabies Expert Bureau meeting

April 7 - 9, 2015 - Lyon (France)

Background

Human rabies, number of animal bites and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) administered are notifiable in all MEEREB countries however reliable rabies data in the region still remain scarce especially regarding human rabies reporting. Thanks however to MEEREB members’ active participation, a clearer image of the rabies situation in the region is becoming more apparent.

MEEREB participants stated that human rabies transmitted by dogs can be and should be eliminated from the region and discussed requirements to conduct a successful rabies elimination program. Although in all MEEREB countries a legal framework for rabies control exists, most often rabies elimination is not considered as a public health priority. In addition, although some rabies control measures are already in place, there is still a significant disparity among the MEEREB countries as to each country’s response to its rabies situation. Furthermore, some of the conditions for successful rabies elimination programs are not met. MEEREB members agreed that reinforced intersectional collaboration and “One Health approach” are the keys for successful rabies control.
