Rabies is a major problem in the Philippines where, every year, up to 300,000 people are treated for bites, mostly from dogs.


/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

In the Philippines, around 300 people - mostly children - die every year from the disease.



/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 55,000 people across the world die of rabies every year.



/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

The world's most infectious disease is 100 percent fatal - but also 100 percent preventable.



/Lifelines/Al Jazeera
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.


/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

Bibo was bitten by the neighbour's dog that may be carrying the rabies virus.



/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

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.



/Lifelines/Al Jazeera
GARC (Global Alliance for Rabies Control) hopes to eliminate rabies in the Philippines by 2020.


/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

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.



/Lifelines/Al Jazeera
Working together, the departments of health and agriculture and the GARC have already got rid of rabies on one island in the Philippines.


/Lifelines/Al Jazeera

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.
