The number of animal rabies cases in Ontario has decreased markedly in the last two decades. However, the annual number of courses of rabies post-exposure prophylaxis (RPEP) administered has not decreased consistent with the decrease in animal rabies cases. This presentation considers the relationship between animal rabies cases and RPEP, as well as some possible reasons that the number of courses of RPEP administered has not decreased consistent with the decrease in animal rabies cases.

Presenter: Dr. Dean Middleton

Dr. Dean Middleton is a veterinary epidemiologist whose primary areas of interest are enteric and zoonotic diseases. Dean joined Public Health Ontario in 2009, after having worked at the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for ten years.
