Rabies Prevention Center

Rabies virus circulation is intense in Cambodia. Since its creation in 1995, the Rabies Prevention Center at the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) in Phnom Penh has provided rabies prevention services after a potentially infectious bite to over 175,000 people in Cambodia.

PASTEUR IN CAMBODIA IS TAKING STEPS TO COMBAT RABIES 

“130 years after Louis Pasteur discovered the rabies vaccine and we still have about 800 deaths per year in Cambodia. It is not acceptable. It is a public health emergency” Dr Didier Fontenille, Pasteur Director said. The Institute has recently launched a 5 year action plan to fight rabies in Cambodia, in collaboration with Ministry of Health.

First step is raise awareness by educating and communicating widely through Cambodia

We have noticed a real lack of information about this frightening disease

Second step is to increase access to vaccination after bitten.

Our Institute is aiming to operate two more rabies vaccination centers in 2018. One in Battambang to cover the northwest and one in Kampong Cham chosen because many national roads intersect there. Battambang center aims to vaccinate about 10 00 bitten people per year.

Our Actions

5 YEAR ACTION PLAN TO FIGHT RABIES IN CAMBODIA

Step 1

Raise Awareness by Educating, Cummunicating

People know very little about rabies, its transmission and prevention. Actions simultaneously during 5 years from now:

      • BOOK : 48 pages illustrated book in khmer Written by Institut Pasteur du Cambodge. Designed and edited by SIPAR. Cambodian public aged 12 and over Spread across whole Cambodia.

By reading this book, Cambodians will learn about:

      • what rabies disease is
      • its risk of transmission
      • how to protect themselves and their communities from getting the disease

15 600 books spread for free to • schools and mobile libraries, Youth Clubs, Prisons, Hospitals, Garment factories, Teacher training centers….. 2 000 books sold to NGOs, individuals 4 000 books spread for free to Pharmacies – Schools directors 32 500 books bought by companies to spread to their staff and families. Further orders In progress.

Step 2

Increase Access to Vaccinations after bitten

Same standard as at the Pasteur Institute in Phnom Penh.

Currently : only 3 rabies vaccination center in Cambodia including Pasteur Institute Phnom Penh.

Around only 30 000 Cambodian people estimated to get vaccination after be bitten by dogs per year More than 600,000 Cambodian are estimated to be bitten by dogs per year.

We create a second anti rabies vaccination center  MoH – Insitut Pasteur in Battambang province
