From the Hon. SecratoryDr. Khan Amir Maroof

Ma’am/sir,

Rabies has been known as a neglected tropical disease but we strive to bring full attention to this fatal disease and let it not be neglected anymore.

This year marks a decade of the journey of our organisation, Consortium Against Rabies. We have strived to spread awareness among the policy makers, the healthcare personnel, and the communities.

We tried to bring all the stake holders including veterinarians on a common platform through CMEs, conferences in various states of India. We believe that empowering the state leadership with the right information about rabies management will ultimately lead to strengthening of the National Rabies Control Program. And our efforts are directed towards this objective. As the young doctors are the future of rabies control in India, we regularly organise national poster competition and short video competition to engage the Gen Next and spread awareness on online platforms.

We thank all the members and each one who has helped in supporting the cause of the organisation. The support of Indian Association of Preventive and Social Medicine and Academy of Family Physicians of India deserves a special mention.

We request for your support in future and look forward to expanding our rabies awareness activities in the academic, the research, the medical education, and the policy making domain.

Join Consortium Against Rabies to contribute to a Rabies Free India.
