28 September is commemorated as Worlds Rabies Day. Rabies is a vaccine-preventable, zoonotic, viral disease affecting the central nervous system. Domestic dogs are the most common method that rabies is typically transfered to humans.
The Katutura community joined hands with the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform to launch World Rabies Day, towards developing a safe and conducive environment under the theme "all for one, one health for all".
This event was held at the UN Plaza in Katutura.
