STEPWISE APPROACH TO RABIES ELIMINATION (SARE)

The Rabies Elimination strategy is based on activities planned in accordance with the Stepwise Approach to Rabies Elimination (SARE) for the country to move from an endemic state to a disease free status.

SARE is a stepwise progression towards becoming a rabies disease-free country, consisting of 6 stages (Stage 0 to 5), each with a set of activities that build on each other to continuously reduce the risk of disease, with the country being declared completely free of human dog- mediated rabies when it reaches Stage 5.
