5.1.1.2. Why is epidemiological information important?

- Rigorous epidemiological surveillance gives insight into how relatively rare or common rabies is.
- This information is necessary to determine how rapidly rabies spreads and where rabies is most persistent and prevalent.
- This information is also essential to plan (targeted) rabies control measures and demonstrate how effective they are.
