World Rabies Day Seminar on 27 September 2013
The day is also an annual reminder to pet owners of the importance of having their pets vaccinated against rabies. In addition, it reminds pet importers of their responsibility for the safety of people and animals.
World Rabies Day is held annually on 28 September, the anniversary of the death of Louis Pasteur who, with the help of colleagues, developed the first effective rabies vaccine. The day is coordinated by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control, a non-profit organisation. World Rabies Day was launched in 2007.
