Mission Rabies, in conjunction with their local partner charity, the Big Fix Uganda launched a rabies vaccination campaign in northern Uganda in 2015. Over 6 days 6 teams vaccinated over 8000 dogs in Koch Goma sub-county of Nwoya district, reaching over 70% vaccination coverage.
We started vaccinating in this region following an increase in suspected rabies cases and since Nwoya borders the beautiful Murchison Falls National Park we felt it important to start vaccinating in this area to protect dogs, humans and local wild life.
In July 2016 we returned to Nwoya district with international volunteers for our second year of vaccinations, vaccinating 4,039 dogs and achieving 80% coverage. Following on from the success of the vaccination programme and fantastic local engagement in Koch Goma, the Big Fix Uganda will be expanding to Alero, a neighbouring sub-county following the Koch Goma vaccination campaign.
The expansion of our work within a year epitomises the ideals of Mission Rabies. Through local support and the dedication of our partner charity we are able to expand our work to vaccinate more dogs and save more lives!
