Share your message this World Rabies Day!


As most of you already know, World Rabies Day is a great annual opportunity to increase awareness by holding an event, getting the media interested in your work and connecting with the wider rabies prevention community.

The World Rabies Day 2018 theme is Rabies: Share the message. Save a life. This highlights the importance of education and awareness to prevent rabies. You can use this at many levels to share different messages, from the policy-level message to governments to commit to the 2030 deadline, to community-level messages about vaccinating dogs and treating bite wounds, and dog bite prevention education for school children.

Keep an eye out for more resources and activities as World Rabies Day approaches. We’ll be sharing new customisable posters soon, and the 2018 World Rabies Day Awards will be launched in June with more categories to recognise even more rabies champions in the community. 

We look forward to learning more about your World Rabies Day activities – you can get in touch at [email protected].
