To continue to progress in disease control management and in improving animal welfare, veterinarians need to encourage and achieve a sustainable change in behaviour towards a responsible and prudent antimicrobial use.
It is time to turn the words into action. Through this year’s WVD theme, the OIE and the WVA seek to encourage all the initiatives and events led by veterinarians, in collaboration with other sectors, to fight antimicrobial resistance and raise awareness on this essential issue in their countries.
PARTICIPATE IN THE WORLD VETERINARY DAY AWARD 2017!
The competition is open to all WVA member associations, alone, or in cooperation with any other selected body.
The organisers will select the winners according to the quality of their project and activities, their ability to raise awareness on the topic as well as their capacity to implement coordinated and multi-sectoral actions, at the occasion of the WVD 2017 and all year long.
The winner will be announced at the Opening Ceremony of the OIE 85th General Session to be held in Paris, France on 21 May 2017 and the award will be presented to the winner during the World Veterinary Congress 2017 in Incheon, Korea (Rep. of) from 27th -31st August 2017.
