1.7. Who can I approach for advice?

As the global community strives towards rabies control and elimination by 2030, a variety of supporting networks, international bodies and centres have been established in different regions around the world. Primarily, regional networks have been established to guide countries in their control efforts and to help promote successes, lessons learnt, and innovative approaches. Through the network, other countries experiencing similar challenges may learn from these to facilitate their own progress towards elimination. The network approach focuses on the sharing of relevant information and experiences to create a unified front against rabies. Due to the transboundary nature of the disease, regional collaboration – promoted through the various networks, organisations and centres – becomes an essential aspect of rabies control and elimination strategies. As such, rabies databases maintained by regional networks are also critical to regional elimination goals.

For further information, please contact these international agencies and bodies connected to rabies.

For an example of how regional networks can support countries’ rabies control efforts, see the PARACON case study
