World Rabies Day is the first and only global day of action and awareness for rabies prevention. It is an opportunity to unite as a community - helping individuals, NGOs and governments to connect and share their work.
This year’s theme focuses on vaccination and collaboration.? In brief, the theme reminds us of key current issues in rabies elimination, namely:
The goal of Zero by 30,
the importance of dog vaccination and post-exposure prophylaxis; and
the need for a united effort towards achieving elimination of this transboundary disease.
