The Cost of Curbing Rabies

Bali needs an estimated Rp. 20 billion (US$2.15 million) each year to control rabies on the island. To date, however, the funds allocated to this purpose have only totaled between Rp. 10 – 13 billion (US$1.07 – US$1.4 million) annually. The funds used in fighting rabies have been primarily spent on buying rabies vaccine, operational costs in the administering of the vaccines and education of the local community on rabies-related issues.

The head of the Bali Agriculture and Animal Health Department for the Province of Bali, Putu Sumantra, told on July 25, 2012, that funds used to fight rabies have been drawn approximately half from the provincial budget and half from the national budget.

The shortfall of funds has been covered in the past by donations from international agencies, such as the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).

Sumantra explained how the FAO gave 130,000 dosages of anti-rabies vaccines to Bali in the current year. These much needed medicines allowed Bali to carry on with the third phase of the current anti-rabies program.
