September 28 is an opportunity for people around the world to unite in rabies prevention.
Every year hundreds of thousands of people like you organize and take part World Rabies Day. All over the world people take part in local, regional and national events, held to raise awareness about and/or prevent the spread of rabies.
What can you do?
The individual events themselves vary enormously, from educating village elders in remote areas to national media campaigns, from sponsored runs to mass dog vaccinations.
When people know about rabies, understand how is is transmitted and what to do when a person is exposed to the virus, lives are saved.
There are lots of ways to raise awareness - you could organize a rally, visit a school to talk to the children about safety around dogs, and/or encourage your local newspaper or radio station to recognize World Rabies Day.
