The National Rabies Information System (NaRIS) is a patient-based rabies program accessible to all stakeholders- DOH, DA, WHO, LGUs, RHUs, CHOs, ABTCs, NGOs, and the private sector- through the internet. It facilitates data collection, aggregation, and utilization, and has the capacity to perform drug inventory.
NaRIS is a standards-based website that will be developed for 3 levels of users namely, the public, animal bite treatment center personnel, and
managers/ decision makers.
It is an information portal for the public regarding NaRIS, rabies, first aid tips, locations of animal bite centers. The public may also use it a
s a notification portal where any person can report a possible rabies case.
It serves as the online bite and rabies registry and inventory card where trained animal bite treatment center personnel will input patient-based data ideally at the point of care.
The website is a dashboard and database where decision-makers can easily retrieve data important for decision-making.
This project was initiated by the DOH Infectious Disease Office through funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation through the World Health Organization Philippines.
