We estimated the association between amount charged and probability that dog owners in N'Djaména, Chad, would have their dogs vaccinated against rabies. Owners would pay ≈400-700 CFA francs (US $0.78-$1.36)/animal. To vaccinate ≥70% of dogs, and thus interrupt rabies transmission, health officials should substantially subsidize these vaccinations.
