VIRTUAL EVENT
UNITED AGAINST RABIES

One Health in Action—Partnering for Success

12:00 – 1:30 pm
(UTC/GMT + 2 hours)

The current global crisis has highlighted the interdependence of human and animal health, and the need for a One Health approach to overcome existing challenges and emerging threats associated with zoonotic disease.

As one of the oldest known zoonoses, rabies is entirely preventable, yet remains a major public health problem. However, rabies control and elimination is possible through a united, One Health approach that strengthens human and animal health systems and drives progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

The framework for this approach exists for rabies (‘The Global Strategic Plan to end human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030’) and a United Against Rabies Forum to deliver its vision will be announced at this event, but for rabies elimination to become a reality by 2030, we need your efforts, political will, commitment, and resources.

Learn how you can be involved and contribute—join this virtual event, which will be hosted by FAO, OIE, and WHO (the Tripartite).
