Malawi is among the world’s hotspots for rabies and this horrendous disease poses a huge burden to the country. Mission Rabies expanded to Malawi in May 2015, based in Blantyre, a city with the highest recorded number of child deaths from rabies. We are supporting them in their goal to eliminate rabies in 3 Malawian districts through mass vaccination of dogs, an IBCM (integrated bite case management) programme and rabies risk awareness education for children.
