FAVA Endorsement for 3rd Edition of CAW Syllabus

The Federation of Asian Veterinary Association (FAVA) has endorsed the next edition of our ‘Concepts in Animal Welfare’ (CAW) syllabus! This next edition will contain several new modules including Disaster Management and the OIE (World Animal Health Organisation). As FAVA mentions “it is acceptable that this resource is such a great contribution among the veterinary education not only in Asia but also globally”. Once finalised, we are expecting that this new version will be launched at the end of this year.
