The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has announced to eradicate rabies from the country by the year 2020.

The effort will be in cooperation with the World Health Organisation and international experts.

According to the National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT), the eradication of rabies from the country was announced by the ministry’s permanent secretary Sophon Mekthon at a press conference yesterday.

The conference was participated by representatives from Chulalongkorn Hospital, Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Medicine, and the Thai Red Cross Society.

He announced the plan to eradicate rabies from Thailand by the year 2020 in cooperation with experts from WHO and 25 countries according to the wishes of Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn.

He said the realization of such a goal will require all sectors to cooperate, particularly local authorities, the general public, and network organizations. Rabies remains a crucial issue for Thailand. The Kingdom suffered 14 fatalities from rabies in 2016, while three patients have already been identified in 2017.

All persons who contracted the rabies virus by being bitten by infected animals will die unless they receive vaccination in time.

Active measures will be used to raise awareness on rabies among the general public, enhance the detection of rabies patients or rabies-related deaths, speed up the diagnosis, and provide fast responses that will allow the victim to receive vaccination within 48 hours.

HRH Princess Chulabhorn, as the President of the “Disease-free Animals, Safe Humans from Rabies” campaign has expressed her wish to eliminate rabies from Thailand within two years, ahead of the regional master plan ASEAN RABIES FREE 2020, which plans to rid the virus from the region by the year 2020.
