Captured in August, 2014, in Mongolia’s Khuvsgul Province, this photograph depicts a Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident conducting an interview with a mother and daughter in order to assess their knowledge about rabies. Assessments like this one were conducted in seven locations so as to gain a better understand of the rabies immunization system in Mongolia.

The FETP trains workers on the ground to help countries build sustainable capacity for detecting and responding to health threats. The program develops in-country expertise so that disease outbreaks can be detected locally and prevented from spreading.

Additional Information:
"September 28th is World Rabies Day, a global health observance that seeks to raise awareness about rabies and enhance prevention and control efforts. Co-sponsored by CDC and the Alliance for Rabies Control (ARC) since 2007, World Rabies Day has been celebrated in countries throughout the world, including the U.S."

"World Rabies Day is an excellent time to take steps that can help prevent and control rabies, such as vaccinating pets including dogs and cats and providing education on how to avoid the animals that typically transmit rabies: raccoons, bats, skunks, and foxes."
