The World Health Organization (WHO) recently reviewed the scientific advancements in the area of rabies prophylaxis and in 2018 issued new guidelines for consideration of the national governments for implementation. Following this, a Government of India (GoI) expert group met in January 2019 in Delhi and examined these WHO recommendations for implementation in India. In this article, the author has reviewed both the WHO and GoI recommendations and provides expert interpretation and opinion to both service providers in government institutions and private medical practitioners.
