#Rabies360Challenge – raising awareness around the globe

#Rabies360Challenge is back for 2021!

This September, in preparation for World Rabies Day (28 September), we will be raising awareness of rabies elimination through this global event, open to everyone who believes, as we do, that it is time to stop people dying of this preventable disease that continues to kill almost 60,000 people each year.

With richer countries free from the constant threat of rabies, many people are not aware just how big a problem this disease remains. Rabies still takes a tremendous toll, mainly in Africa and Asia. It is our mission to bring this to everyone’s attention. So, let’s get everyone talking about it!! YOU CAN HELP RAISE AWARENESS TOO!

HOW? By taking on #Rabies360Challenge ANYWHERE and ANYTIME throughout September. Everyone is invited to join!

WHY? Because by eliminating rabies we can save lives! Read all about it here!

Why not start thinking about a challenge you might like to do.  There are lots of ways to stay informed and get involved:

  • Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn to see what others have been doing on their challenge
  • Join in? We’d love to hear from you, so let us know what you are doing here! Or simply tag @emergence_MAH in your social media posts!

The FREE Social Media #Rabies360Challenge Toolkit is now available in the Knowledge Hub! You can use the graphics to spread the word on your social channels!

The more of us taking part, the bigger the chances that we can beat rabies and save lives.

Your challenge. Our fight. Eliminating rabies together.

Participation is entirely voluntary and at the participants own risk. MSD Animal health accepts no liability. Your participation may result in your #Rabies360Challenge posts, including photos and videos, being shared through emergence channels (website and social media).
