An estimated 60,000 people die from rabies each year globally. As most rabies cases in humans are caused by dog bites, we can prevent deaths from rabies by increasing awareness, vaccinating dogs to prevent the disease at its source and administering life-saving treatment after people have been bitten. A collaborative response through rabies control programmes contributes to disease prevention and preparedness.

On the World Rabies Day, OIE, WHO and FAO together with Russian competent authorities for public and animal health organize a virtual event to present the importance of eliminating rabies.

The impact of COVID-19 on seasonal and circular migration

The FAO Liaison Office with the Russian Federation is pleased to invite you to a virtual event dedicated to the issues of seasonal and circular migration.

As the pandemic’s consequences slowed down the harvest in some parts of the world, many seasonal workers remained without livelihoods, and there were constraints on transporting food to markets.

The webinar, organized by FAO will focus on practical solutions that aim to mitigate COVID-19 impacts and associated challenges, and provide a platform for sharing information on seasonal and circular migration.
