Summary (continued)
Since 2011, an increase in cases of rabies in dogs and humans has been observed, due to lower vaccination coverage, mismanagement of waste and an increase in the stray dog population. The political will at international, regional and national levels is the cornerstone of the strategy to eliminate the disease. In the framework of the regional approach in the Maghreb, additional efforts and political willingness are necessary at the national level to better control and eventually eliminate rabies.
