2.1.8 Which form of surveillance is best suited for rabies?

Surveillance types generally depend on program needs. To determine the real-time spatial and temporal distribution of rabies by specific virus variants, passive surveillance is inadequate. A multi-tiered approach to surveillance, involving active surveillance approaches and laboratory techniques to determine the genetic characteristics of the rabies viruses circulating in given areas would provide a comprehensive picture.
