In 2017 alone, nearly 62,000 people were bitten by dogs in Myanmar, forty percent of them were children under the age of fifteen, and approximately 1,000 people died. Around 70% of the country’s dogs are strays, this equates to an estimated 2.8 million dogs. As is the case in many countries, authorities often kill stray dogs because of the fear of rabies and the lack of available information. This project aims to save both these dogs and individuals who might have contracted rabies, and died as a result, by carrying out an ambitious vaccination programme to show that this is the only real way to eliminate the disease.
