Ecology of dogs in Sri Lanka and transmission of rabies among dogs and wildlife.

The estimated dog population in Sri Lanka is 2.5 million, and the annual canine vaccination coverage in the country has ranged from 34% to 56%. Rural and suburban areas have a high proportion of free-roaming dogs with unrestricted access to wild animal habitats. Therefore, there is the possibility of rabies transmission from dogs to wildlife and vice versa. To facilitate a successful rabies control programme, habitats where interspecies interactions occur must be identified and targeted for rabies control. Areas that attract animals, such as food-waste dumping sites, should also be targeted, while robust population surveys and rabies surveillance must be enhanced. The objective of this chapter is to describe the dynamics of dog ecology and highlight the status of canine vaccination in this country. This chapter will also discuss collaborative One Health measures being adopted to prevent rabies transmission between dogs and wildlife and end human rabies deaths by 2030.
