E-mail Print PDF

THE Cebu City Government has been recognized by the Department of Health (DOH) 7 in its effort to eliminate rabies in the city.

DOH 7 Director Jaime Bernadas said the City helped in the implementation of the Rabies-Free Visayas Island Project, which is being jointly undertaken by them and the Department of Agriculture.

“Its goal is to prevent human rabies through the control and eventual elimination of canine rabies, creating a paradigm shift for human rabies prevention,” he said.

The project, which is already on its last year of implementation, seeks to declare the Visayas a rabies-free zone by the end of 2015.

“As of this year, three provinces, three municipalities and four islands are declared rabies-free. We attribute this enormous success to the key strategies and interventions we have utilized under the leadership of our local government units. Undoubtedly, it was this very keen set of strategies and interventions which served as key to eliminate rabies in such provinces and municipalities,” said Bernadas in his one-page letter to Mayor Michael Rama.

The top three areas that have best practices include Biliran, Limasawa in Southern Leyte and Iloilo City.

Cebu City, for its part, will be given a plaque of appreciation.

Among the programs implemented by the City for the elimination of rabies is the registration and vaccination of dogs and cats as a precautionary measure. The City also established an Animal Birth Control Center among many others.

Bernadas said they want to award and recognize LGUs for their practices in rabies prevention so they can hopefully be replicated by other communities. This, since they have a goal of achieving a rabies-free Philippines by 2020.

Rama, together with Department of Veterinary and Medicine Fisheries Chief Dr. Pilar Romero, are in Aklan now to receive the recognition.
