Toolkit

These tools are a selection of the full suite that have been developed by our partners to enhance the coordination and efficiency of rabies elimination programs.

The toolkit aids delivery of our packages throughout the planning, implementation and evaluation stages.

WVS Data Collection App

WVS Data Collection App

Data-driven dog vaccination in the palm of your hand

The WVS App has been crafted from a decade of field experience running large-scale dog vaccination campaigns around the world. The system is a game-changer in campaign implementation, monitoring and evaluation, providing field staff with clarity on where they should focus vaccination efforts and campaign managers with the data they need to refine the program for efficiency and effectiveness. The app is a powerful tool in the quest to eliminate dog-transmitted rabies and is available to anyone running dog vaccination programs.

Rabies Exposure Assessment and Contact Tracing (REACT) App

Rabies Exposure Assessment and Contact Tracing (REACT) App

Digital support for robust rabies surveillance

The REACT App addresses two core challenges to the implementation of effective rabies surveillance: standardised investigation of suspect rabid animals in challenging filed conditions; and timely centralisation of case data. The app structure is based on the cost-effective methods of Integrated Bite Case Management and makes it possible for anyone to implement this approach.

VaxPlan

VaxPlan

Untangle the complexities of planning an effective dog vaccination campaign.

The goal of any rabies control program is to vaccinate a high proportion of the dog population as efficiently as possible. How to achieve this is impacted hugely on the specific composition dog population in the project location; how easy dogs are to handle and how willing people are to bring them for vaccination.

The VaxPlan tool enables you to input the characteristics of your dog population and provides insights into the likely vaccination coverage that will be achieved from a given campaign structure. This can aid the planning of new programs, enhance the efficiency of existing programs and forecast the effects of strategic alterations.

Launch the tool
GDREP

GDREP

Understanding the impacts and costs of national rabies control.

The Global Dog Rabies Elimination Pathway (GDREP) provides a means for public health officials to plan for a national strategy, allowing the resources required and estimated length of campaigns to be predicted.

STARC Mapping

STARC Mapping

Maximising the impact of vaccination resources

The Settlement Type and Road Connectivity (STARC) Mapping tool enables a representation of the potential rabies burden and transmissibility to communities to be established and for mapping of campaigns to be optimised based on this data.

Rabies Econ

Rabies Econ

Explore the cost-benefit of your campaign.

The Rabies Econ tool supports governments in the planning and assessment of elimination programs, allowing estimations of the cost and benefits of different vaccination strategies to be made.

The most recent version of the tool can be found in this publication
