(5/28/2011)

Beritabali.com reports that there is now little hope that Bali will meet its goal of becoming rabies free by 2012. This unfortunate development is reflected by the fact that in mid-2011 cases of rabies are still being reported in Bali. Based on World Health Organization (WHO) criterion, no areas can be declared “rabies free” until it can report two years of no new cases.

The spokesman and protocol officer for the province, Ketut Teneng, told the press on Tuesday, May 24, 2011, that Bali is now re-targeting to be “rabies free” in 2015. To achieve this, the province wants to be able to certify that there are no new cases reported during 2012.

Said Teneng: “We hope there are no new cases in 2012 so that by 2015 rabies will be eliminated. We are vaccinating again. This will be followed by surveillance, surveys, laboratory test, spot checks in all regencies until we can declare there are no new cases of rabies.”

Teneng says that in the current year the government of Bali will allocate Rp. 6 billion (US$680,000) to eradicate rabies.

in 2010 the provincial government spent Rp. 3 billion to fight the epidemic.

Mass Vaccination Continues

On Wednesday, May 25, 2011, the provincial government of Bali launched the next phase of its mass vaccination program focusing on three regencies of the island where past efforts have been seen as less than optimal: Bangli, Klungkung and Jembrana.

in accordance with WHO guidelines, Bali is targeting that 70% of the estimated dog population of 400,00 dogs are vaccinated by the end of 2011.
