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 the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC) 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.

Global Strategic Plan: Zero by 30

On the occasion of the World Rabies Day 2017, an ambitious plan to end human deaths from dog-transmitted rabies by 2030 was launched by the OIE, WHO, FAO and GARC.

The plan –‘Zero by 30: The Strategic Plan’ – centres on a One Health approach and addresses the disease in a holistic and cross-sectoral manner while highlighting the important role veterinary, health and educational services play in rabies prevention and control.
