United Against Rabies Forum

On 22 September 2020, the leadership of the Tripartite announced the formation of the United Against Rabies Forum (UARF) - a new international network of members committed to achieving global rabies elimination. This unique international One Health Initiative urges that sufficient status and political leverage be given so that members, partners and countries can focus on activities that efficiently contribute to the long overdue elimination dog-mediated rabies.

By sharing knowledge, experience, ideas, and information the UARF is working on concurrent campaigns to eliminate canine rabies through the vaccination of dogs, treat all potential human rabies exposures with wound washing and post-exposure prophylaxis, and improving education about rabies prevention where it is needed most.

A UARF website is currently under preparation where you will be able to find out more its mission and objectives and possibilities to join and contribute to the goal of zero human deaths from dog-mediated-rabies by 2030.
