Mass dog vaccination project aims to prevent child rabies – BBC News

More than 100 children die from rabies every day around the world.

The virus, transmitted through the saliva of infected people and animals, almost always proves fatal once symptoms begin to show.

Studies have concluded that the easiest and most cost effective way to stop its spread is by vaccinating enough dogs – and one charity is doing just that.

Mission Rabies started its campaign in India and is now moving on to Malawi, as Lizzie Crouch reports.
