End Rabies Now (ERN) is a GARC-coordinated communications campaign that aims to galvanize global support and funding to end human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030.

The End Rabies Now campaign goals are to:

  • Significantly raise the profile of rabies as a global health challenge that demands international attention and active support to save lives
  • Support the achievement of a target set out by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG 3) that aims to end the epidemics of neglected tropical diseases by 2030
  • Put rabies elimination on the agenda of foundations, donor governments and international institutions; thereby increasing available financial resources to stimulate action in rabies-endemic countries
  • Gain the commitment of politicians to advocate for and support rabies elimination in endemic countries
  • Create a platform to galvanize civil society groups interested in rabies control to present a united front against rabies.

This campaign was set up to help all of us move forward in our common goal of ending rabies. Please make it your campaign as well

The goal of eliminating rabies deaths by 2030 needs the support of human and animal health and welfare organisations, whether large or small, to show governments and policy makers that the elimination of rabies must be made a priority. We therefore invite your organisation to take action today by joining the End Rabies Now campaign.

The campaign has been endorsed by GARC’s patron, Professor Alexander McCall Smith, along with Sir Richard Branson, Dame Jane Goodall, Major Levison Wood, Lord Trees and Professor David Heymann. As part of the global rabies community, we invite all of you to support the campaign by signing the pledge and sharing the website with your networks.
