Pasteur in Cambodia is taking steps to combat rabies

We are at the forefront of rabies prevention in Cambodia in terms of numbers of patients served, of extended geographical coverage, of the intradermal (ID) vaccination protocol used, and of the availability of equine rabies immunoglobulins (ERIG). 

  • First step is raise awareness by educating and communicating widely through Cambodia. We have noticed a real lack of information about this frightening disease.

  • Second step is to increase access to vaccination after bitten. As planned, Institut Pasteur du Cambodge opened two more rabies prevention centers, one is in Battambang province (2018) to cover the north-west region while another one is in Kampong Cham province (2019) because many national roads of the north-east region intersect at the capital of Kampong Cham. Currently, each of the two new centers is providing rabies post-exposure prophylaxis to at least 1,000 patients per month.

130 years after Louis Pasteur discovered the rabies vaccine and we still have about 800 deaths per year in Cambodia. It is not acceptable. It is a public health emergency”.  The Institute has recently launched a 5 years action plan to fight rabies in Cambodia, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health.

Our actions

5-YEAR ACTION PLAN TO FIGHT RABIES IN CAMBODIA

 

People know very little about rabies, its transmission and  prevention. Our 5-year action plan is to spread the information about rabies simultaneously across the whole country (2018-2023):

  • Until 2018, there was only one Rabies Prevention Center located in the capital city, Phnom Penh.

  • Our 5-year action plan is to promote the accessibility of Rabies PEP through the creation of 2 additional Provincial Rabies Centers.

Book

A 48 pages illustrated book in Khmer, written by Institut Pasteur du Cambodge and designed as well as edited by local publishing house SIPAR. 

 

  • More than 16 000 books have been freely distributed to schools and mobile libraries, youth clubs, prisons, hospitals, garment factories, teacher training centers and many more.
  • Over 2000 books were sold to NGOs & individuals
  • 4000 books were offered to pharmacies & schools directors 
  • 32 500 books bought by companies to give for their staff and families.

Awareness Campaigns: On Cambodian markets, schools…

 

Media-Events

By 2020, our main goals have been achieved:  We have created two new Rabies Prevention Centers in collaboration with the Provincial Health Department, MoH. One is in Battambang province (2018) and the other in Kampong Cham province (2019). Both provide services at the same standard and pricing as in Phnom Penh.
