Rabies Elimination Progress

Latest SARE score: 1.5 (2018)
In-country SARE assessment done: Oui

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.

Dakar, Senegal

GARC, CDC and the FAO facilitated an in-country SARE in Dakar. Using the SARE tool, Senegal was able to assess the current rabies situation by identifying accomplished and pending activities towards an effective strategy focused on achieving the Zero by 30 goal. Furthermore, a  comprehensive short-term Workplan was developed to the prioritize pending activities, ensuring that a clear, practical workplan is available to drive efforts nationally and within the region.
