In January 2017 we will be holding the second year of vaccinations in Meru district, Tanzania. This is a beautiful rural area and you will be vaccinating with Mount Meru as your backdrop. We conducted our first vaccination campaign in 2016 and are extending the project this year so that you can enjoy the experience too.
You will be working in teams aiming to vaccinate 70% of the dogs in three wards. You will be working alongside experienced Tanzanian’s in truly multinational teams, vaccinating dogs and distributing educational material to ensure that we prevent the spread of rabies.
We will train you how to use state of the art epidemiological techniques via our mobile application, Mission Rabies App, to ensure that our work is scientifically robust. We collect data on every dog we vaccinate so that we can ensure we reach our target of 70% vaccination coverage to eliminate rabies.
This project is suitable for all volunteers, non-vets, vets, nurses and vet students, but you should be comfortable around dogs.
