Project Summary

Rabies is a zoonosis disease which cause tens of thousands human deaths every year in the world, and over 90% human rabies cases occur in Asian and African area. In South-East Asia, more than 1.4 billion people are at the potential risk of rabies infection.

To establish good management practices for wildlife rabies in APEC economies, a self-fund APEC workshop will be held on November 13-17 in Chinese Taipei. The main topics are:

1) Information sharing on wildlife rabies management practices;

2) Development and application of oral rabies vaccination for use in wildlife; and

3) Accurate, reliable, and safe laboratory diagnostic technique for wildlife rabies.

The five-day workshop activities will include:

1) Expert participation in the fields of rabies control strategies, wildlife management, laboratory diagnosis, disease surveillance, and cost-benefit analysis;

2) Overviews of rabies situation in APEC economies; and

3)  Two-day field trip on rabies management activities to help participants to conduct field investigations.

This capacity building workshop is structured to maximize information sharing about the science of rabies and rabies-related regulatory programs in the APEC region. Promotion of a common set of science-based best practices for wildlife rabies surveillance, control and elimination will enhance both human and animal welfare throughout the APEC region.
