3.3.6. What resources are needed to set up a rabies control programme?

The resources required will vary from country to country depending on the infrastructure already in place. They will generally include: capital equipment (e.g. vehicles, motorbikes, bikes, refrigerators, fluorescence microscopes etc.), fuel, personnel, disposables (e.g. for vaccination, laboratory analyses, surgical sterilization etc.), vaccine (animal and human), funds to support local subsistence and allowances of personnel involved, funds for meetings, training and community sensitization (including development of educational material), and office supplies if a rabies control programme office is established to ensure effective coordination of the programme.
