International mobilisation

In addition to the OIE’s own actions, an effective rabies control strategy can only be achieved through the effective coordination of partners applying the same strategies.

The OIE works closely with WHO, GARC (Global Alliance for Rabies Control) and FAO to develop international recommendations aimed at greater intersectoral collaboration and global implementation of the most appropriate strategies.

Shared committment WHO/OIE/FAO

Rabies is one of the issues identified as a priority by the OIE, WHO and FAO, within the framework of the joint “One Health” approach developed through the “Tripartite Alliance”.
In this context, the FAO/OIE/WHO Global Conference on Rabies Control, held in Incheon (Seoul, Republic of Korea) in 2011, on OIE’s initiative, provided the opportunity to develop a joint strategy to control the disease worldwide. Priority is given to good governance regarding the distribution of public and private, local, national and international resources targeted at priority prevention actions to be taken in animals.
