Rabies is a major problem in the Philippines where, every year, up to 300,000 people are treated for bites, mostly from dogs.
In the Philippines, around 300 people - mostly children - die every year from the disease.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 55,000 people across the world die of rabies every year.
The world(***)s most infectious disease is 100 percent fatal - but also 100 percent preventable.
The first course of rabies treatment is free in the Philippines and usually involves an injection directly into the bitten area. Bite clinics are extremely busy.
Bibo was bitten by the neighbour(***)s dog that may be carrying the rabies virus.
Bibo(***)s family had to borrow money from neighbours and relatives in order to afford three of the four courses of treatment required to ensure he did not get the disease that, if untreated, is fatal.
GARC (Global Alliance for Rabies Control) hopes to eliminate rabies in the Philippines by 2020.
Maintaining at least 70 percent immunity to rabies in a community(***)s dog population is key to protecting the people in that community, according to GARC.
Working together, the departments of health and agriculture and the GARC have already got rid of rabies on one island in the Philippines.
Dr Betsy Miranda of the Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC) and (***)Lifelines(***) director Brian Tilley propose a traditional toast to controlling, and eventually eliminating, rabies.
