Zero by 30: Our catalytic response

United Against Rabies Collaboration


The Call for Action

Until now, rabies elimination efforts have been fragmented across sectors and regions. In 2015, the world called for action by setting a global goal of zero human dog-mediated rabies deaths by 2030, worldwide.

Our Response

WHO, WOAH (formerly, OIE), FAO and GARC are united to deliver a comprehensive, Strategic Plan to reach “Zero by 30”.  We developed the Plan in consultation with relevant global, regional and country stakeholders.

It provides a coordinated foundation for rabies prevention, integrated with human and veterinary health system strengthening to reach the world’s most underserved populations. This aligns with Sustainable Development Goals.

How We Will Reach Zero by 30

The Theory of Change outlines the societal changes needed to reach our goal. These changes aim to save costs, lives, and provide a means to validate rabies elimination in countries and regions.

Our multi-stakeholder platform engages countries and experts to advance towards Zero by 30. We are creating an enabling environment for change.

The creation of the UAR Forum

In the spirit of collaboration and global unity in the fight against rabies, and recognizing the need for solidarity to achieve the Zero by 30: Global Strategic Plan, the United Against Rabies coalition was expanded to create the United Against Rabies Forum. The UAR Forum brings together global experts from various organizations, ministries and countries so that they can work towards specific objectives and activities to facilitate efforts towards achieving Zero dog-mediated human rabies deaths by 2030.
