GARC facilitated a national-level SARE workshop. During the SARE workshop - attended by medical and veterinary personnel from the Health Ministry, Public Health Inspectors, laboratory diagnosticians, bite center medical officers, academia and animal welfare volunteers - the government assessed their progress towards rabies elimination and generated their rabies elimination workplan.
Rabies Elimination Progress
The Stepwise Approach towards Rabies Elimination (SARE) is a practical planning, monitoring and evaluation tool to guide, develop and refine rabies control programmes. It provides measurable steps, designed as a logical flow of activities, to progress from Stage 0 to Stage 5, in efforts towards freedom from dog-transmitted rabies.
A SARE score of 1.5 out of 5 signifies a country where small-scale rabies control programs are in place and the country is working towards developing a national rabies control programme.
This country is not currently using the Rabies Epidemiological Bulletin.
