World Rabies Day 2015



Many people around the world observe World Rabies Day (WRD), which raises awareness about the impact of rabies and how the disease can be prevented. It is held on September 28 each year.

Global elimination of rabies is a possibility. World Rabies Day helps communities bring that possibility closer to reality.

Individually, the events organized for World Rabies Day, September 28 every year, raise awareness and promote prevention activities in at-risk communities. Collectively, they show the unity and determination of stakeholders globally to bring an end to rabies.

End Rabies Together is the theme for World Rabies Day 2015. It builds on previous themes to highlight the on going importance of global commitment across sectors - governments, NGOs, donors, corporations, and many others - to effectively end the spread of rabies and save both human and canine lives.

We can End Rabies Together. Join the movement

RIWA - Rabies in West Africa will celebrate World Rabies Day on Monday September 28th with an official program and public forum at the Osu Eben-ezer Presbyterian Church Hall and will be open to the public to come and learn more about rabies. Representatives from schools are welcome to come and learn more about rabies and take this information back to their respective schools.

Time is from 9:00am - 12 noon.

At the end of the forum we will officially launch the 3rd International Conference on Rabies in West Africa being held March 23-26, 2016 at the College of Physicians and Surgeons.

In addition to the Public Forum, we will vaccinate the first 200 pets brought to the Church grounds for free between 8:00am and 12 noon.
