World Rabies Day
World Rabies Day is observed on 28 September every year with the aim of raising awareness about the prevention of rabies and highlighting the progress made in defeating this horrifying disease. Rabies is a deadly viral infection that affects the nervous system of humans and animals. It is primarily transmitted through the bite of an infected animal, most commonly dogs.
The main objective of World Rabies Day is to educate people about the importance of vaccinating their pets, especially dogs, as this can greatly reduce the risk of rabies transmission to humans. Vaccinating dogs not only protects them from rabies but also helps create a barrier between the virus and humans, ultimately working towards the elimination of rabies.
Rabies is a preventable disease, yet it continues to pose a significant public health threat in many parts of the world, particularly in developing countries where access to healthcare and veterinary services is limited. Through awareness campaigns and vaccination programs, World Rabies Day aims to bridge this gap and ensure that everyone has access to the necessary resources to prevent and control rabies.
International Day For Universal Access To Information (IDUAI) 2022
International Day For Universal Access To Information (IDUAI) is observed on 28 September every year. This day aims to promote the right to access information as a fundamental human right and to raise awareness about the importance of transparent and accountable governance.
Access to information is crucial for the development and well-being of individuals and societies. It enables people to make informed decisions, participate in public affairs, hold governments accountable, and contribute to the overall progress of their communities and nations.
On IDUAI, various activities and events are organized to highlight the significance of access to information. These may include workshops, seminars, conferences, and awareness campaigns. The day also serves as an opportunity to advocate for the adoption and implementation of laws and policies that guarantee the right to information for all.
World Rabies Day and International Day For Universal Access To Information are both observed on 28 September each year. While World Rabies Day focuses on raising awareness about the prevention of rabies and the progress made in eliminating the disease, IDUAI highlights the importance of access to information as a fundamental right.
By working towards the prevention and control of rabies and promoting the right to access information, we can contribute to a healthier and more informed society. Let us join hands to create a world free from the fear of rabies and where information is readily available to all.
