Shine a light on rabies heroes in your community!


The second World Rabies Day Awards, brought to you by MSD Animal Health and GARC, celebrate the great work done by individuals and organisations to end rabies.

This year the focus is even more on the work being done in communities – we’d like to recognise the unseen heroes at the grassroots level who make life safe for all the people and animals who live around them.  We invite you to send in nominations for individuals from any sector – charity/NGO, government or private – who go above and beyond to make a difference where they work.

And in the organisation category, this year we’re focusing on the non-governmental sector, and  inviting entries for NGOs/charities registered in the country where their community work is based. 

You can send in multiple nominations, for other individuals and organisations, for your own organisation, and even for yourself.  One individual and one organisation will be awarded in each region - Asia, Africa and the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. Each award consists of US$ 1,200 or resources of equal value, an award plaque and a certificate. This year we are also introducing certificates of recognition for shortlisted entries.

The Awards are your opportunity to raise global awareness of rabies champions in your communities, which could lead to international and national support for their work – nominate a champion today!

The deadline for nominations is August 7, 2017.

The World Rabies Day Awards are brought to you by MSD Animal Health and the Global Alliance for Rabies Control.
