This is anchored on Republic Act No. 9482 or the “Anti-Rabies Act of 2007” which provides for the control and elimination of human and animal rabies, alongside the national target to pursue the attainment of a rabies-free Philippines in 2020.

In Sarangani, three human deaths caused by rabies was recorded in 2014, two in 2015 and four deaths in 2016.

Tessie Castillo, rabies program coordinator of the Provincial Health Office (PHO), said the reported rabies cases in the province is only few but this should not be ignored because rabies is detrimental to human health.
