Authors, reviewers, editors and readers,
Welcome to the September 2019 THP-Z issue. In this issue the editorial focuses on Rabies in celebration of the 13th World Rabies day which fell on 28th September 2019. Although rabies continues to threaten public health security globally, it is preventable and a global agenda to have zero deaths by rabies gives us hope. A summary on some facts about rabies is included in this issue.
We invite you to also update yourself on the occurrences of notifiable diseases in Zambia, well-articulated in our ZNPHI published IDSR bulletin. Also published in the September 2019 issue is a Ministry of Health, Virology Laboratory monthly report on Influenza established through the Influenza Sentinel
