Public health activities:

The "Rabies and encephalitis" group houses the national reference center for rabies and also participates in several national surveillance programs for this virus, in collaboration with other partners including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Livestock, etc. . The first public health mission is to ensure the diagnosis and identification of viruses involved in cases of human and animal encephalitis in general and rabies in particular. A rabies prevention surveillance, treatment and organization program has been launched in Senegal and has made it possible to strengthen a local surveillance circuit for human and animal rabies cases, mobilizing local resources. A project to improve care by increasing the number of treatment centers is underway.

Expertise activities:

The group's expertise is also made available to the Ministry of Health for the training and / or awareness of its agents.
