Animal rights body urges Centre, state govts to implement anti-rabies vaccination programme

Delhi-based animal rights body FIAPO (Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations) has called upon the Centre and state governments to implement a countrywide anti-rabies vaccination programme for stray and pet dogs.

According to FIAPO, India accounts for 36 per cent of the total global rabies cases. Measures such as animal birth control (ABC), vaccination, counselling, and medical aid are needed to control rabies cases, the animal rights body said.

“The World Health Organisation’s target of eradicating human rabies deaths globally by 2030 won’t succeed if we do not tackle rabies on an urgent footing so that ours is the last generation that lives under the threat of rabies,” said Bharati Ramachandran, CEO of FIAPO.

FIAPO also demanded immediate post-bite treatment, through onsite first-aid stations, and administration of rabies shot to bitten individuals.

“Since 2017, FIAPO has been researching and actively working towards tackling rabies through its campaign ‘Rabies Free India’, in line with WHO’s ‘One Health’ approach. The campaign – implemented in Kerala, Punjab and Assam – aims to ensure that better policies are put in place and communities empowered to provide quality care to animals, thereby addressing the problem of human and non-human animal conflict at its root,” added Bharati.

Recently, chilling incidents of mass killings of dogs were reported from across the country. In Karnataka’s Shivamogga district, 150 stray dogs were allegedly buried alive in September 2021. Around 300 dogs were allegedly culled in Lingapalem village of West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. In Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain, five dogs died after having acid poured on them.
