World Rabies Day 2023: History, Dates, Activities, and FAQs

World Rabies Day 2023: On September 28, NGOs, governments, and people from all over the world will unite to raise awareness about the dangers of rabies and how it can be prevented for World Rabies Day. The event, organized by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC), aims to educate the public on how rabies can be eradicated in humans and domesticated animals if the necessary steps are taken. Over ninety-nine percent of human cases of rabies are caused by dog bites. Dogs are the most common animal affected by rabies on a global scale. GARC sponsors the event not only to raise awareness for one day, but also with the hope that communities will implement measures to prevent the spread of rabies throughout the entire year.

HOW TO OBSERVE WORLD RABIES DAY

Get involved

GARC hosts dozens of events around the world, from South Africa to Afghanistan, where you can learn more about how to control rabies. The group is also circulating a pledge that people can sign to fight for the Zero by 30 cause. Other ways to get involved include organizing an event for yourself or nominating a champion for a World Rabies Day award.

Do your research

There are several steps that must be taken in a number of different situations regarding rabies. Make sure you know what to do if your pet bites another person, if another person’s pet bites you, or if your pet is bitten by another pet. In any of these cases, there are specific ways doctors and veterinarians must handle the situation, so do your part to know as well.

End the stigma

Typically, when we think of rabies, we envision zombie-like dogs, humans, squirrels, and skunks foaming at the mouth. Keep in mind that these are symptoms of a potentially fatal virus, so they should not be taken lightly. Therefore, if we are to eradicate rabies, we may need to alter our perspective and no longer view it as the plot of a horror film.

WHY WORLD RABIES DAY IS IMPORTANT

It has an ambitious goal

GARC has set an ambitious but admirable goal for rabies: Zero by 30. That is to say, by putting the right measures in place, the world could see zero human deaths of rabies caused by dog bites by the year 2030. This resolution was agreed upon in 2015 among a group of organizations including the World Health Organization, World Organisation for Animal Health, UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and GARC.

It’s a serious disease

Every year, more than 60,000 people around the world die from rabies infection. Considering the World Health Organization deems rabies a 100 percent preventable disease, it’s now up to communities, NGOs, and governments around the world to come together to put the measures in place that will stop these unnecessary deaths.

It spreads knowledge

By knowing how to prevent pets from getting rabies, anyone can do their part to put an end to the virus. World Rabies Day seeks to highlight local and state laws that help control the spread of the disease and also hosts events for vaccinating puppies under 12 months of age. Knowing about rabies is the first step to eradicating it among people and our pets.
