WORLD RABIES DAY 2022

Today, the 28th of September 2022 is World Rabies Day.

In a joint statement, the World Veterinary Association and the World Medical Association, say that dog-bite transmitted rabies is a disease of neglected populations, frequently in resource-poor areas.

This year’s World Rabies Day will continue to highlight and promote these undertakings, with the goal to eliminate dog-bite transmitted rabies by 2030.

The World Veterinary Association and the World Medical Association are confident that a One Health approach and using community health strategies will lead to the eradication of dog-bite transmitted rabies.
