GARC provided technical assistance in an WOAH-facilitated Virtual SARE Workshop in Burundi. During the virtual SARE workshop, the government and other stakeholders assessed their progress towards rabies elimination before generating their unique rabies elimination work plan.
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 0 out of 5 signifies that basic information on the epidemiology of the disease is being compiled and that rabies is recognized as an endemic disease.
