World Rabies Day 2021
Sneha’s Care in marking World Rabies Day 2021 takes an opportunity to unite as a community – helping individuals, civil society, and governments to connect and share each other’s work. We have aimed to expand vaccination campaigns throughout Nepal, beginning with the Lalitpur Metropolitan City. With the slogan “RABIES: FACTS, NOT FEAR” Sneha’s Care along with different stakeholders celebrated and participated in the interaction program organized by Nepal’s Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development, Veterinary Hospital, and Livestock Service Expert Center, (Lagankhel, Lalitpur), Epidemiology & Disease Control Division (Teku, Kathmandu) and Kathmandu Metropolitan City Office of Municipal Executive, Health Department, Pashu Sewa Mahasakha on September 28, 2021.
In the forum, Ms. Sneha Shrestha urged that the government should include animal welfare programs and anti-rabies vaccination campaigns in their annual plans, policies, and budget. She also suggested that the production of anti-rabies vaccines be increased so that we do not have to stop our work. Ms. Shrestha further added, “NGO’s working for animal welfare should collaborate to achieve ZERO BY 30.”
Did you know? If treatment is not received and symptoms begin to appear, death from respiratory failure is almost always inevitable. That’s why prevention is important.
