Vets Beyond Borders has been working with the Government of Sikkim since 2005 on a state-wide rabies prevention program. Dr Catherine Schuetze, executive drector, Vets Beyond Borders India, said in an email that the training and prevention program had been extremely successful. There had been no human rabies deaths in Sikkim since 2008 and no animal rabies cases since 2010.
VetTrain 2012 plans to provide training to around 600 animal health professionals from all across India till April 2013 in collaboration with the Animal Welfare Board of India, gradually transferring capacity building skills and expertise to Indian public sector personnel.
I hope this helps in some way.
