No One Should Die of Rabies

Author Name: Dr. Ashok Banga | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

This book is about the victory of science, and yet, the failure of our system to deliver its benefits to the needy, causing more than 55,000 deaths year after year due to rabies.

Why should someone die of rabies when we have all the means to protect each life? Why do developing countries still suffer when developed countries have largely eliminated the disease? 

Although rabies is incurable, and once contracted equals to a death sentence, it can be effectively prevented with an inexpensive vaccine.

These questions, and many more, haunt those whose loved ones are exposed to rabies and yet cannot find clear answers, leading to panic and anxiety. Even medical professionals are not well versed with latest recommendations and methods for dealing with each patient’s unique condition. The abundance of half-baked and misleading information causes further confusion and mismanagement in a time when urgency is crucial. Each rabies death is a failure of our knowledge-sharing and health-care systems.

This book contains easy access to medically correct, evidence-based information to aid both doctors and patients in informed decision-making.

The author, a doctor and a top writer on Quora – the popular knowledge sharing platform – has made the whole subject easy to understand and interesting to read, with to-the-point answers and without academic jugglery.

Dr. Ashok Banga is a pediatrician with 4 decades of experience treating patients and observing the plight of the public in various medical conditions, ranging from avoidable, to preventable, to downright insufferable.

He believes that the true work of a doctor lies in educating the patients and he delights in helping them understand complex medical conditions with ease. Doing this effectively requires turning complex medical science into simple advice that anyone can understand and apply. 

He has honed this ability as a consultant pediatrician, a national leader in pediatric organizations, an inventor with a national prize from NRDC, a writer of 4 medical books and chapter contributor to several others, an editor for Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) publications and as a top-writer (2018) for Quora where his answers on rabies, tetanus, other infectious diseases and other topics have garnered over 7.5 million views.
