Virtual event United Against Rabies: One Health in Action – Partnering for Success

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 13:30

The current global SARS-CoV-2 crisis has highlighted the interdependence of human and animal health, and the need for a One Health approach to overcome existing challenges and emerging threats associated with zoonotic disease. For decades dog mediated rabies remains a major public health problem, although its control and elimination is possible through a united, One Health approach. The framework for this approach exists for rabies (‘The Global Strategic Plan to end human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030’) and a United Against Rabies Forum to deliver its vision will be announced at this event, but for rabies elimination to become a reality by 2030, we need your efforts, political will, commitment, and resources.

Learn how you can be involved and contribute - join this virtual event, which will be hosted by FAO, OIE, and WHO (the Tripartite).
