Latest SARE score: 0.5 (2017)
In-country SARE assessment done: Non

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 0.5 out of 5 signifies that situational rabies data is being collected and analysed for initiation of local-level intervention campaigns.
