Rabies is a fatal viral disease that causes acute inflammation of the brain in humans. Transmission is usually through a bite or scratch or contact with the saliva of an infected animal. However, it is a vaccine preventable disease. It is important that those travelling to rabies-endemic countries are aware of the risk of rabies transmission and the role of pre and post-exposure vaccination.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Describe the prevalence of rabies worldwide.
Discuss the risk of rabies being transmitted to overseas travellers.
Understand the different modes of rabies exposure.
Brief overseas travellers on rabies prevention strategies.
Identify immediate post-exposure prophylaxis.
