Caption

The older brother of this boy died from rabies after being bitten by a dog. That same rabid dog also bit this young boy. Now, 2 months after his bite, we learn about this exposure. The family couldn't afford to travel to Freetown to buy human rabies vaccine to give to the boy to help prevent rabies. They couldn't afford the vaccine either, which is sold at different prices in different pharmacies. I and another person donated the money to cover the costs of the family and the boy. Unfortunately, there are too many like him who never get the vaccine post-exposure prophylaxis. Africa and Asia remain hot spots for canine rabies. Something has to be done.
