GARC facilitated a SARE workshop that was organised by the Public Health Veterinary Service of the Ministry of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine with support from the WHO country office. During the SARE workshop - attended by medical and veterinary personnel from the Health Ministry, Public Health Inspectors, laboratory diagnosticians, bite center medical officers, academia and animal welfare volunteers - the government assessed their progress towards rabies elimination and generated their rabies elimination workplan.
Rabies Elimination Progress
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.
This country is not currently using the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin.
