Program Dharma Shows Way to Eradication
Program Dharma is an innovative partnership to control and eradicate the deadly rabies disease which has troubled Bali since 2008. The community outreach / One Health program shows that community education & engagement plus robust vaccination schedules, to achieve a minimum 70% vaccination of dogs in any population, will stop the spread of rabies.
In its first year, the successful pilot reduced the threat of rabies in humans and dogs in 28 banjars (sub-villages) within 3 semi-urban communities in Sanur. When the pilot was officially launched on 24 March 2017, after a 12-month trial, all 28 Program Dharma banjars were rabies-free.
