The 3rd issue of the WHO Rabies Bulletin Europe for 2012 is available. The reported rabies cases are presented in tables and a map. The first miscellaneous article is a case report on an imported human rabies case in Switzerland. The U.S. citizen died after being hospitalized and sequence analysis of the rabies virus revealed an association to insectivorous bats in the Americas. The second article by Dr. Meslin gives an overview of the topics discussed at the World Health Organization (WHO) International Expert Consultation on rabies held at WHO’s headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, on 18–20 September 2012.. Countries endemic for canine rabies were urged to initiate and strengthen their rabies prevention and control activities, and to increase the level of awareness about the disease, particularly among children.
