How do I choose an appropriate strategy?

This depends firstly on the prevailing epidemiological situation. If a nearby rabies outbreak is threatening to (re-)infect an area, a protection strategy is the strategy of choice.

In the situation where there is an existing rabies outbreak or rabies is enzootic in a vast area and a large-scale approach is not possible, and where the budget is limited, containment and /or control can be an option.

Only if there is sufficient and sustained political and financial support, and the area is large enough, or a more comprehensive large-scale fox ORV programme is initiated, is elimination the most appropriate strategy.
