  5. 5. DEFINITION Human Rabies is a viral infection of the CNS usually transmitted by contamination of a wound with saliva from a rabid animal and is virtually 100%fatal once symptoms develop.
  6. 6. • Rabies is a zoonotic disease (a disease that is transmitted to humans from animals) that is caused by a virus.
  7. 7. GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION* Rabies Free Area in which no case has occurred in human or any animal species for 2 years. * Rabies is a major public problem in areas in which Dogs are uncontrolled. * Rabies is present on all continents with the exception of Antarctica, but more than 95% of human deaths occur in Asia and Africa. Once symptoms of the disease develop, rabies is nearly always fatal.
  8. 8. Rabies Human DeathsRabies Human Deaths Annual human deaths worldwide are approximately 55,000; every 15 minutes a patient dies of rabies. In the United States, there has been a mean of 3 deaths per year since 1990.
  9. 9. PAKISTANPAKISTAN • In Pakistan 2000 - 5000 cases / yr. • Rabies is endemic in Pakistan. • Human rabies is not a notifiable disease in Pakistan • The main vector for rabies in Pakistan is the domestic dog
  10. 10. KEY FACTS • Rabies is a vaccine-preventable viral disease which occurs in more than 150 countries and territories. • Infection causes tens of thousands of deaths every year, mostly in Asia and Africa. • 40% of people who are bitten by suspect rabid animals are children under 15 years of age. • Dogs are the source of the vast majority of human rabies deaths.
  11. 11. • Immediate wound cleansing and immunization within a few hours after contact with a suspect rabid animal can prevent the onset of rabies and death. • Every year, more than 15 million people worldwide receive a post-exposure vaccination to prevent the disease – this is estimated to prevent hundreds of thousands of rabies deaths annually. KEY FACTS
  12. 12. INCUBATION PERIODINCUBATION PERIOD Highly variable usually 20 – 180 days, peak at 30 – 60 days
  13. 13. MODE OFMODE OF TRANSMISSIONTRANSMISSION A- ANIMAL BITES : through rabid dog bites and the saliva of the biting animal contain the virus. B- LICKS : licks on abraded skin and mucosa transmit the disease.
  14. 14. Who is most at risk? •Dog rabies potentially threatens over 3 billion people in Asia and Africa. •Poor people are at a higher risk (cost = US$ 49 in Asia) •Although all age groups are susceptible, rabies is most common in children aged under 15 & majority are male.

  16. 16. Headache, fever, sore throat Nervousness, confusion Pain or tingling at the site of the bite Hallucinations – Seeing things that are not really there Hydrophobia – “Fear of water" due to spasms in the throat Paralysis – Unable to move parts of the body Coma and death Signs / SymptomsSigns / Symptoms Clinical DiagnosisClinical Diagnosis

  19. 19. Pre-exposure immunization in people •Travellers spending a lot of time outdoors, especially in rural areas. •People in certain high-risk occupations such as laboratory workers dealing with live rabies virus and other rabies-related viruses. •People involved in any activities that might bring them professionally or otherwise into direct contact with Dogs. •Children. •Living in or visiting high risk areas.

Was There An Exposure?Was There An Exposure? A bite (penetration of the skin by teeth) from a known or suspect rabid animal Scratches, abrasions, open wounds (bleeding within 24 hrs), or mucous membranes (eyes) contaminated with saliva or other potentially infectious material from a known or suspect rabid animal Other contact - such as petting an animal or contact with urine, feces - does NOT constitute an exposure
