Get ready for World Rabies Day 2021. This year’s theme will be announced on 26 April 2021!


September 28th 2021 will be the 15th World Rabies Day!

Sign up to our Rabid Bytes newsletter to be the first to find out what the new theme is. 

World Rabies Day is the first and only global day of action and awareness for rabies prevention. It is an opportunity to unite as a community and for individuals, civil society, and governments to connect and share their work with the world.

If you want to take part but you are unsure of what you can do on the day, you can get some inspiration from past World Rabies Day events on our global map (above) or you can watch some videos about things that have been done in previous years! Remember that anything that contributes to rabies awareness or its elimination can be considered a World Rabies Day event – that means everyone can get involved, no matter who you are or what you do for a living

We know that the last year and a half has been challenging but let us work together and have something positive coming from it. Let us help to refocus efforts on rabies control and elimination so that we can achieve our global goal of Zero by 30.

Let us continue to raise awareness about rabies and help to drive this terrible disease to elimination – let us End Rabies Now!
