KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE & PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT AWARDS WINNERS

The winners of this years Knowledge Exchange and Public Engagement Awards were recently announced. 

IBAHCM's Professor Katie Hampson was awarded the Best Collaboration in Policy & Practice category with "Working towards eradicating rabies".

Professor Hampson and her colleagues at the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine are leading research to eradicate rabies in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Research led by Professor Hampson has generated critical evidence that has played a key role in persuading international agencies - the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) - to advocate for the global elimination of rabies deaths by 2030.

The research team are also generating detailed estimates of the global burden of rabies and informing prevention, control and elimination strategies. 

In the video below, Professor Hampson talks about her ambitions to eradicate rabies in the poorest parts of the world.
