Solutions to rabies elimination at scale – application of a GIS risk-modelling approach for rabies control in Southern Malawi
14:00 - 15:00

After graduating from Glasgow Vet School in 2000, Inga worked small animal clinical practice in Scotland. In 2015, she joined her first Worldwide Veterinary Services volunteer trip, which led to regular volunteering with veterinary organisations in Asia and Africa, participating in mass rabies vaccination, neutering campaigns, and delivering surgical training to local veterinary surgeons.

Inga completed a master’s degree in 2020 from The University of Edinburgh in Conservation Medicine, conducting research in Nepal investigating free-roaming dog canine distemper virus seroprevalence, and the transmission risk to wildlife. In 2023, she joined Mission Rabies as the Malawi Country Director managing the local expansion of the rabies work in Malawi.
