FAVA Congress 2014

18th Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations Congress
28–30 November 2014 Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

A new feature in the Aust Vet J

This is the first issue of a new initiative for the Australian Veterinary Journal to include highlights of abstracts of papers from local and international conferences. The first conference to be profiled is the 18th Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations Congress (FAVA) which was held in November 2014. Hosted by the Singapore Veterinary Association, it attracted veterinarians from over 28 countries. The congress theme The Rise of the Asian Veterinary Profession offered delegates the opportunity to have access to quality education, including major plenaries, and streams on small animal medicine, dentistry, as well as animal welfare and disaster management. FAVA’s vision is to be recognised by the public as the unified professional association serving the veterinary community and needs of the region. Its mission is to enhance the quality of life of the people in the region through the promotion of responsible animal care and welfare by a unified professional association. One of their prime objective is to foster closer relationships and understanding among Asian veterinarians and veterinary associations. As well as the AVA, its current membership includes the veterinary associations of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korean, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, New, Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. The inclusion of selected abstracts from this meeting aims to raise the profile and to increase the awareness of FAVA and its roles, for FAVA members.
