3.2.4 Should rabies in humans be a notifiable disease in my country?

Yes. Functional diagnostic services are a precondition for notification of human rabies, and human rabies cases should be systematically investigated to identify anyone who has come into contact with the disease.

All medical practitioners should be aware of the list of nationally or sub-nationally notifiable diseases that infect humans. Local (e.g. at district level) or national public health authorities can provide more detailed information.
