Taking the Bite out of Rabies: The Evolution of Rabies Management in Canada
Involved in rabies research for much of their working careers, editors Rowland Tinline and David Gregory explore Canada’s unique contributions to rabies management in Taking the Bite out of Rabies. By placing the major players in rabies management from provincial and federal agencies, universities, and research institutions in historical context, Tinline and Gregory trace Canada’s largely successful efforts to control rabies. Concerned about the loss of institutional memory that tends to follow success, Tinline and Gregory view this book as a crucial way to collate, verify, and preserve records for future understanding and research.
The book maps the history of rabies across Canada and explores the science, organization, research, and development behind Canada’s public health and wildlife vaccination programs. It also discusses how ongoing changes in agency mandates, the environment, and the evolution of the rabies virus affect present and future prevention and control efforts.
