The World Veterinary Association (WVA) is the world’s largest family of veterinarians, as well as the common voice for them all. Representing more than 500,000 veterinarians through 95 veterinary member associations on six continents, the WVA unites the veterinary profession at a global level. The WVA supports the work of veterinarians in diverse areas of medicine, research, practice, and outreach and is guided by its belief in One Health, which recognizes that humans and animals share the natural environment and create harmony with and for each other. The WVA envisions that collaboration between the veterinary profession and other professions can ensure that humans, animals, and the environment prosper together.
