A rabies epidemiological database for sub-Saharan Africa
Below is an interactive map of PARACON countries. Upon hovering over a country, the country name and the rabies endemicity status is shown. If you click on the country, you will be taken to a new page where shared data visuals are depicted. These visuals are also interactive and data can be filtered by clicking on the various options within the legend.
The Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin is a regional rabies-specific disease surveillance platform that provides a data repository from which specific key indicators, essential to any rabies intervention program, form the basis of data collection.
The data that is used to populate the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin has been submitted by PARACON member countries who have graciously agreed to share their data publicly on this site. A core principle of the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin is that the data remains that of each country and the bulletin simply acts as a centralised, data gathering and analysis tool.
The rabies data collected on the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin will be used to:
facilitate advocacy campaigns on a national, sub-regional, regional and global level for rabies prioritization and stakeholder support
- provide countries with accurate data to develop and further the implementation of their National Rabies Prevention Control Strategies.
