World Rabies Day Awards 2019

The annual World Rabies Day Awards, brought to you by GARC and MSD Animal Health, celebrate community rabies champions from across the world each year. In the lead up to our 2019 launch for nominations, you can draw inspiration from some of last year’s awardees:

  • Debby Ng is helping to reduce human-dog-wildlife conflict in Nepal.

  • In Morocco, SFT Le Sanctuaire de la Faune de Tanger is making Tangier a model city for humans and dogs.

  • The BIG FIX Uganda is working with communities to deliver its veterinary services and education programme.

  • In Chiang Mai, Lanna Dog Welfare works with many stakeholders, from veterinary schools to the military, to prevent rabies and improve canine welfare in Thailand.
