A Report of the WHO/Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation consultation on human and dog rabies prevention and control is now available. This report represents findings and discussion among international experts on rabies held during a meeting in Annecy, France October 7-9, 2009. This meeting included sessions on human rabies prevention, control and elimination of canine rabies, and future research. Recommendations include: support of the four-dose Essen PEP schedule, support of developing specific strategies to serve vulnerable populations in Amazonia and sub-Saharan Africa, and strong support of continued development of new immunological and chemical sterilization tools for canine population control, among other recommendations.
