Stakeholders from the CAR came together in a truly One Health manner and have completed a virtual SARE workshop. During the online SARE workshop - attended by participants from the various sectors of the country - the government assessed their progress towards rabies elimination and generated their rabies elimination work plan.
Rabies Elimination Progress
The Stepwise Approach towards Rabies Elimination (SARE) is a practical planning, monitoring and evaluation tool to guide, develop and refine rabies control programs. It provides measurable steps, designed as a logical flow of activities, to progress from Stage 0 to Stage 5, in efforts towards freedom from dog-transmitted rabies.
A SARE score of 1.5 out of 5 signifies a country where small-scale rabies control programs are in place and the country is working towards developing a national rabies control program.
This country is using the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin but has not agreed to share their data publicly.
