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.
This country is not currently using the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin.
