World Rabies Day

2017 marks the 11th World Rabies Day. 

Since it began in 2007, the rabies community have aligned to make World Rabies Day a global phenomenon. In that time, its life-saving rabies prevention messages have reached millions of people in over 100 different countries.

Get involved by organising or attending an event near you. GARC will promote registered events on this website and via our social media feeds.

In 2016 we highlighted the work of individuals and organisations who make a vital contribution to the goal of global elimination of human deaths from canine rabies by 2030. The World Rabies Day MSD Awards recognise and reward that work. You can view all the 2016 award recipients here. Stay connected with GARC through our newsletter, Facebook and Twitter to find out when nominations open for 2017. 

Thank you for reading. Let's make this the biggest and best #WorldRabiesDay so far!
