THE WORLD VETERINARY DAY 2018!
On Saturday, 28th April 2018, the global veterinary community celebrates the World Veterinary Day to highlight the important contribution of the veterinary profession to benefit animals and society. This year, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Veterinary Association (WVA) devote attention to the crucial role played by veterinarians in the development of more sustainable animal husbandry practices, improving not only the health of animals, but also the health and wellbeing of people and the environment.
Throughout this special day, numerous initiatives by veterinarians are taking place around the world to raise the public awareness about the important role of the veterinary profession engaged in a wide range of employment fields and delivering services for a more sustainable future of our planet and its habitants.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the World Veterinary Day Award, which was initiated by the OIE and WVA to reward the most successful contribution by the WVA member association in celebrating the veterinary profession in their country.
