'September 28 is observed as World Rabies Day, a global health remembrance day observed since 2007 to raise awareness about one of the world's deadliest infectious diseases and bring together stakeholders to increase prevention and control efforts worldwide.
It is an opportunity to reflect on how rabies impacts our community and other communities around the world. Rabies is still present in many parts of the world including India, where it is mostly found in street animals and wildlife. Because of low vaccination levels in pets and stray dogs/cats, rabies in pets or other domesticated animals is still relatively high. To spread awareness about the ill effect of this disease in society as well as to pledge our unconditional support to eliminate this disease from this country by 2030, Department of Microbiology, The Assam Kaziranga University has arranged a webinar on 28th September, 2022 at 3 P.M. titled 'Rabies free India by 2030-Dream or Reality?'. We invite your registration and participation on the aforementioned event.
