What We Do

Working together to end human deaths from dog-mediated rabies

We are an inclusive platform bringing together international organisations, country and regional authorities, development partners, private sector partners, academic experts and NGOs.

We know that we cannot beat rabies unless we work together.

We are building on the good work done by the United Against Rabies Collaboration, Partners for Rabies Prevention and many others, providing a space to contribute, coordinate and share information and best practice.

Our regular online events are open to anyone interested in rabies elimination and we hope that the information and other resources available on this website are useful for all.

We welcome inquiries from potential member organisations who share our commitment to ending all human deaths from rabies by 2030.

Our annual stakeholder meeting brings partners and members together to assess progress and set the agenda for the coming year.

We are putting our inclusive spirit into practice, tackling the major barriers to progress on rabies control and elimination in line with objectives set out in the Global Strategic Plan (Zero by 30).
