WVA Draft Position on Veterinary Statutory Bodies

Author: WVA

Animal health and veterinary services are a global public good and
require consistent, qualified and accountable delivery to achieve effective
implementation.

beyond the role of tending to the health and welfare of sick and injured
animals. A wide range of services are required by the public in the area

prevention of zoonotic disease, preservation of biodiversity,
environmental protection and market access, to name a few.
