Makerere University, Uganda

In Uganda, most households own pets especially dogs and cats which are used for security and vermin control respectively. However, they are not aware of Rabies, its transmission and first Aid in case bitten by dogs or cats.

This awareness workshop will take place at St. Noah Girls Secondary School, Zana and students from other secondary schools will be invited. The workshop involved a pretest on Rabies where levels of knowledge were assessed followed by discussions with the students about Rabies. At the end of the session, a post test was given to the students to assess levels of knowledge acquired about Rabies. This event therefore aimed at creating awareness on Rabies transmission, First Aid and Treatment.
