Abstract

Human rabies cases in China have continued to increase in recent years, reaching a new peak in 2007. Parallel with an increase in human rabies deaths, a number of animal species with rabies have been reported in the majority of rabies-endemic areas. In this report, the occurrence, status, and control of rabies in both humans and animals are reviewed. Vaccines and immunoglobulin for human and animal use and postexposure prophylaxis for human are also summarized. The current strategies for rabies elimination in China are presented.
