Bi-annual Public Awareness Campaigns starting from spring 2014

Financial and technical support for planning, implementation and monitoring the national rabies oral rabies vaccination program for Albania was one of the key activities of the PAZA Project.
Albania started implementing the national rabies vaccination program in spring 2014, in line with the an agreement signed by all Western Balkan states for controlling and eradicating this dangerous disease in the region.
Informing the general public about the ongoing vaccination campaigns every spring and every autumn and raising public awareness in general about how to protect against the risk of being infected was of crucial importance for successfully implementing this program.

Communication with General Public

Core element of the communication was a 30 sec TV spot conveying the key messages:
Rabies can kill you
Beware of foxes and dogs with strange behavior
Don’t touch baits
The spot is regularly broadcasted timely for each spring and autumn vaccination campaign.

Communication with schools and students
