  • The creation of regionally-relevant Global Guidelines which set best practice standards in particular aspects of veterinary care
  • The provision of continuing education (CE) and other educational resources for our members, particularly those in regions in which companion animal veterinary care is still emerging
  • Helping to raise awareness of the importance of companion animals in the One Health movement

    New WSAVA Position Statement on Equitable Access to Veterinary Therapeutics for Veterinarians Globally

    “Ready access by healthcare professionals to pharmaceuticals (e.g., medicines, anesthetics/analgesics, etc), biologicals (e.g., vaccines, etc), parasiticides, and antiseptics is one of the key pillars of appropriate patient care, whether in human or veterinary medicine. Inequities in availability and access exist between various regions of the world for a variety of reasons. We call upon key stakeholders (regulatory authorities, manufacturers, and healthcare professionals) to seek solutions that would broaden access while maintaining the sanctity of the veterinary-client-patient+/- pharmacist relationship, where warranted.”

    This joint position statement stems from an earlier more comprehensive WSAVA statement (in the Resources section) which was developed based on member engagement on this issue.
