Rabies Elimination Progress

Latest SARE score: 2.5 (2018)
In-country SARE assessment done: No

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 2.5 out of 5 signifies a country where a national rabies control programme is being implemented nationwide, with clear inter-sectoral collaboration.
