Rabies virus circulation is intense in Cambodia. Since its creation in 1995, the Rabies Prevention Center at the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) in Phnom Penh has provided rabies prevention services after a potentially infectious bite to over 175,000 people in Cambodia. Pre- and post-exposure vaccination and rabies immunoglobulin are available there 5 ½ days a week. The presence on the IPC campus of the National Reference Center for confirmatory testing and an Epidemiology & Public Health unit in an enzootic setting also provides a unique opportunity for research to combat this fatal disease.
