A World Health Organisation meeting for the South-East Asia region dealing with problems of rabies and its control was held at the Pasteur Institute of Southern India, Coonoor, India, in July 1952. Medical and Veterinary officials from 23 different countries participated. WHO consultants on rabies arranged demonstrations and laboratory courses and prepared laboratory instructions for use in the training course. The WHO Expert Committee on Rabies at its second session in Rome, September 1953, recommended that the laboratory instructions and lecture material prepared for the Coonoor meeting be expanded and revised for publication.

This technical manual covers five phases of laboratory work with rabies virus. Part I describes the rapid diagnosis of rabies by demonstration of Negri bodies, the mouse inoculation test for the isolation of rabies virus and the identification of rabies virus by the serumvirus neutralization test.
