Mission Rabies

Mission Rabies is an international NGO working towards eliminating dog bite mediated human rabies cases by 2030.

We do this through research driven approaches, conducting canine mass vaccination campaigns, rabies surveillance and education. We have worked in Malawi since 2015, vaccinating across 3 districts and carrying out surveillance and education across 4 districts in Southern Malawi.
