Paradigm Shift in Rabies Control: A System Approach
Sintunawa C Mail, Wacharapluesadee S , Wilde H , Hemachudha T

Government centered approach in rabies prevention and control has not led to rabies safe community, both in urban and rural areas. Government services and organizations should recognize that only joint collaboration among households and community can lead to a successful rabies control mission. Dog owners should have been more actively involved in the prevention and solving of rabies problem. Promotion and support of government organizations should aim to strengthen the communities to become self reliance in diseases control and health care services. Only by strengthening community roles result in a more sustainable
community disease control program.
