Rabies Elimination Progress

Latest SARE score: 1.5 (2019)
In-country SARE assessment done: Yes
(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 1.5 out of 5 signifies a country where small-scale rabies control programs are in place and the country is working towards developing a national rabies control programme.

In-country Capacity Building

November 2019
Lilongwe

An in-country SARE workshop was held for the first time in Lilongwe, Malawi and was hosted and driven by government representatives. A truly One Health approach was taken, with representatives from various ministries and local and international NGOs in participation. With enthusiastic participation from all representatives, including the Director of the Department of Animal Husbandry and Livestock Development, Malawi was determined to be at stage 1.5 in the SARE. 

A comprehensive, optimistic, yet realistic workplan was then developed using the SARE tool with goals to eliminate dog-mediated human rabies deaths in the medium term - preferably before the goal of 2030.
