Rabies Elimination Progress

Latest SARE score: 2.5.
In-country SARE assessment done: Yes

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.

According to the United Against Rabies (UAR) Rabies Roadmap, a SARE score of 2.5 out of 5 signifies the following: "Dog-mediated rabies is endemic. The country has built a strong case in support of rabies elimination and is in the process of initiating rabies elimination initiatives at the national-level."
