Abstract: Rabies is a fatal, preventable zoonosis but it is not effectively controlled throughout much of the developing countries like India. The impetus for control is hampered by a lack of awareness of true impact. We estimate a disability adjusted life year (DALY) score for rabies to quantify the disease impact relative to other diseases to set priorities for public health interventions.
