Trish Johansen: Eradicating rabies one village at a time

From Saturday Morning, 11:38 am on 17 April 2021

After many years running a veterinary clinic in Cambodia, Trish Johansen is on a mission to eradicate rabies.

More than 100 years after a rabies vaccine was developed, people are still dying horrible deaths from the virus.

She has developed a programme for the Cambodian Government, Eradicating Rabies One Village at a Time, which she says can be used around the world.

Trish Johansen has been heavily involved in veterinary care for mine-sniffing rats and the charity Cows for Cambodia.
