We look back at 2021 and highlight some of our activities and achievements for the year.

The initial goal of the End Rabies Now (ERN) campaign was a resounding success – we set a globally agreed upon goal and developed an endorsed global strategic plan for the elimination of dog-transmitted human rabies by 2030.
