How ACTAsia is helping to combat rabies in animals, adults and children
Rabies is on the up in China. Whilst this lethal disease seems a far cry from our everyday lives – it is very much an issue for parts of China. Rabies is a rare but very serious infection of the brain and nervous system and is usually caught from the saliva from a bite or scratch of an infected animal, most often a dog. China is working hard towards their policy of ‘Zero Rabies by 2025’ and ACTAsia has been instrumental in setting the wheels in motion towards achieving this goal.
