As momentum gathers behind the elimination of human deaths from canine rabies by 2030, and we approach the 10th World Rabies Day, it has never been more important to thank the individuals who dedicate their time and effort to making a difference.
The saying “what goes around comes around” proved to be true for veterinary professors and staff from the University of the Philippines who recently took their turn to be students completing the Rabies Educator Certificate.
At the end of March 2016, GARC signed a memorandum of understanding with the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI) in Germany. This MOU promotes the exploration of common interests and opportunities for collaboration as we strive towards the elimination of canine rabies.
The University of Pretoria (UP) Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty has integrated the Rabies Educator Certificate (REC) into their veterinarian-training coursework this year. This online rabies-awareness resource was included in the veterinary school’s community-engagement module, part of which focuses on rabies education.
