Rabies Elimination Progress

Latest SARE score: 3.5 (2019)
In-country SARE assessment done: Yes
(2017 and 2019)

The Stepwise Approach towards Rabies Elimination (SARE) is a practical planning, monitoring and evaluation tool to guide, develop and refine rabies control programmes. It provides measurable steps, designed as a logical flow of activities, to progress from Stage 0 to Stage 5, in efforts towards freedom from dog-transmitted rabies.

A SARE score of 3.5 out of 5 signifies that the country is nearing freedom from dog-mediated human rabies, with a concurrent decline in animal rabies cases.
