As a zoonotic disease, rabies can be eliminated through the collaborative efforts of different sectors including human and animal government agencies, human and animal health professionals, educators, scientists, community groups, and the private sector, among others.
Planning is a key means to ensure that different stakeholders can contribute and work collaboratively in an effective and efficient manner, preventing the duplication of efforts and facilitating a truly One Health approach to rabies elimination. Through effective planning, key challenge areas can be identified and addressed, while areas of strength can be used for advocacy and to support other programs.
Effective planning will also ensure that stakeholders align their programs with the Global Strategic Plan and international guidelines and recommendations.
