WSAVA and Mission Rabies Join Forces on Rabies Prevention

Published: 12/11/2019

We look forward to even more collaboration next year!

We have been working informally with charity Mission Rabies for several years and have now signed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate our collaboration on a joint action plan to increase our contribution to the control of rabies. 

Enhanced collaboration between global stakeholders is vital to help us win the fight against this terrible – but preventable – disease and we’re looking forward to working closely with the team at Mission Rabies on the action plan early next year.

Emeritus Professor Michael Day, Honorary Treasurer of the WSAVA and a Trustee of Mission Rabies, says: “Rabies control is a key element of the work of our One Health Committee and Vaccination Guidelines Group.  This MoU will formalize our relationship with Mission Rabies so that we can work together to maximize the involvement of our small animal veterinary community in a major global push to eliminate canine rabies.”
