The Laikipia Rabies Vaccination Campaign (LRVC) begun in 2015 by the Mpala Research Centre in order to provide real-time health benefits for these vulnerable communities, as well as domestic animals and wildlife. Last year’s campaign saw over 4, 000 dogs vaccinated as a result of support from various partners that included Bruce Ludwig, Laikipia Wildlife Forum, the County Government of Laikipia, and Ol Pejeta Conservancy among others.
Every year, rabies kills 2,000 people in rural Kenya. The disease, transmitted through the bite of an infected animal, disproportionately affects rural, resource-limited communities. Rabies is 100% fatal in humans, and completely preventable. If we take informed steps, we can significantly minimise exposure to rabies and accomplish Kenya’s Vision 2030 of being an entirely rabies free nation!
