According to Manila Bulletin, this is in celebration of the 2019 World Rabies Day and to raise awareness and prevention of rabies, especially to teachers and students.

The Education department will gather along with the Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to discuss initiatives of their agencies in educating people and preventing rabies.

World Rabies day is celebrated once every September 28. The current theme is “Rabies: Educate to Eliminate” and with that, an event called the “World Rabies Day 2019 Celebration” will be held on September 30 at the DepEd Bulwagan ng Karunungan in Pasig City.

The secretaries of Education, Health, Agriculture and Interior Briones, Duque, Dar, and Año, respectively, are expected to give their views on the issues. Officials from the four departments, as well as members of the National Rabies Prevention and Control Committee, awardees, teachers, and students, will participate in the event.

The event includes the release of rabies lesson plans, the awarding of best rabies local government implementers, and declaration of national and sub-national rabies free zone.

As per the report, other partner agencies include UBS Optimus Foundation, Four Paws International, Global Alliance for Rabies Control (GARC), and Education’s Bureau of Learner Support Services-School Health Division, Bureau of Learning Delivery, Bureau of Learning Resources, and External Partnership Services.

This is in lieu of Republic Act No. 9482 or the Anti-Rabies Act of 2007 as the agency said that they will still respond to the mandate to enhance the national rabies education program in the K-12 curriculum.
