World Rabies Day

September 8, 2007 has been declared as the World Rabies Day. A lot of activities and events will take place around the world including anti rabies vaccination for the animals most likely the dogs and cats. Furthermore, some organizations will do some lectures in order to give awareness of this dangerous disease.

As quoted by Stephen J. Scholand, MD, Co-director of A Rabies Free World, Inc.:

Rabies Free World is focusing its efforts on a program "Swim for a rabies free Philippines" in partnership with the Philippine Department of Health, the Bureau of Animal Health and Industry and other local organizations. The Philippines is badly affected by rabies, with several hundred recorded human deaths per year. Thousands more are afflicted with the fear, pain and suffering of anti-rabies treatment following animal bite injuries. Additionally, countless animals suffer from rabies needlessly. Rabies can be prevented at the most basic level by dog and cat vaccination, which costs little more than one dollar. Experts have estimated it would only cost about 8 million dollars to eradicate rabies from the Philippines. What is lacking is global awareness of the scope of this problem. World Rabies Day plans to focus attention on the rabies problem, so we can rid ourselves of this scourge once and for all.

so lets all be aware of this and participate just by bringing our pets to the nearest designated area where anti-rabies vaccination takes place.. this is a world wide event and vaccinations are i think for free..

  • i really don't know how to describe myself. i might think i am like this and that but i don't know if what i think i am is the same as how i appear to the people. i'm simply complicated as if my life is a mere bluff -- a really BIG BLUFF! i always carry my pessimism with me but i'm trying not to be consumed by my own negativity. see? i'm really complicated! LoL! i always love to think of myself understanding things logically. i like puzzling things out. i want to dissect every premises and formulate my own understanding and eventually a conclusion on a certain matter. that's how i make things complicated! haha.. i don't have lots of experiences, my life is boring, it only have shades of white and black all through the journey but i learn from my few experiences and from others' experiences as well. so even if i still don't have broad experiences as many people do, i want to believe that i'm still able to learn what life really is and now i'm still learning and forever be growing! thanks to the people around me! anyway, welcome to my blog! you may think this is just another nonsense blog -- yeah even i, myself, think that way! but that's ok, after all, this is my page!
