    Rabies threatens nations worldwide, mainly affecting poor and marginalized communities in Africa and Asia. Its economic impact is estimated to be over USD 8.6 billion per year. If no new action is taken, a million people will die from rabies by 2030. FAO, OIE, and WHO have been committed to controlling and eliminating of human deaths from canine rabies since 2011, and in 2018 published “Zero by 30: The Global Strategic Plan to Eliminate Human Deaths from Dog-Mediated Rabies by 2030.” United Against Rabies (UAR) Forum is formed as a platform for stakeholders to work together and advance their collective efforts to achieve Zero by 30. The UAR Forum will bring organizations from all sectors including public and animal health specialists, One Health specialists, civil society, research and academic institutions, and the private sector as partners in this collaboration. FAO, OIE, and WHO leadership announced the UAR Forum at an online event in September 2020. The UAR Forum meeting included a wide range of stakeholders and speakers discussing the impact of rabies and its role as a model One Health challenge. The meeting included three technical expert panel sessions with contributions and questions from participants around the world. The ideas and suggestions raised through the discussions identified the priority action areas and activities to be addressed by UAR Forum working groups over the next 12 to 18 months in order to progress to the global goal of Zero by 30.

    Oral vaccination of dogs against rabies
    Recommendations for field application and integration into dog rabies control programmes

    This technical report replaces or supersedes issue-related contents in previous WHO foundational documents on oral rabies vaccination (ORV) of dogs. In contrast to the 2007 WHO recommendations, this report will shift focus from the development of suitable vaccines and baits for dogs towards providing guidance for practical implementation of ORV as a tool integrated into national strategies to control rabies in dog populations. This report therefore mainly addresses basic regulatory considerations for licensing and selection of appropriate oral vaccine candidates, logistics, distribution strategies in the field, communication, activities to be implemented in relation to ORV campaigns, and monitoring of campaigns. It should be emphasized that it is impossible to establish a universally valid and applicable blueprint for the integration of ORV into national strategies for the control of canine rabies. This is not least due to country-specific circumstances, including sociocultural aspects, epidemiological situations, local dog population structures, funding, and available resources. Therefore, countries should use this guiding document to find their own strategic and practical approach.

    The Food and Agriculture Organization and rabies prevention and control 2017
    Also available in:

    Rabies is a fatal zoonotic disease, responsible for around 59,000 deaths worldwide annually. In addition to human deaths, animals including livestock are also affected with over $500 million USD in livestock losses annually. This affects food security and farmer livelihoods. When rabies is present, farmers may be afraid to tend to fields and traders to go to markets. The poor and marginalized communities are most heavily impacted as treatments and access to treatments can be costly. Rabies is p reventable through dog vaccinations and dog population management. This brochure is being produced for World Rabies Day (28 September) and will be published ONLINE to highlight FAO’s role in combatting rabies worldwide (no printed copies are foreseen)
