GARC supported the government of Guinea with the localisation, training and implementation of the RCS tool at a regional laboratory in the Labe Province. Rabies data from several provinces across the country is being captured and analysed using the GARC surveillance tool.
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 using the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin but has not agreed to share their data publicly.
