The management of dog populations is of great public health significance in many developing countries, since the population density and mobility of dogs increase in proportion to human populations(1). Dogs provide the reservoir of rabies virus in 87 out of 167 countries and territories. An estimated 2700 million humans live in the area infected with canine rabies (2), where about 5.4 million people require specific post exposure treatment each year (3). The South-Asia Association for Regional Co-operation (SAARC)has identified rabies as one of the six infectious diseases for priority control through primary health care. This paper compares the data obtained on the prevalence of dogs in Kathmandu valley, following observations of religious practices there in 1986, with the results of a campaign to vaccinate dogs against rabies in 1989.
