Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS)

Supported by


The OIE Performance of Veterinary Services (PVS) pathway is a continuous process to sustainably improve national veterinary services. The PVS pathway empowers national veterinary services by providing a comprehensive understanding of their strengths and weaknesses using a globally consistent methodology based on international standards which can reveal gaps, inefficiencies and opportunities for innovation. This enables countries to take ownership and prioritise improvements to their animal health system.

Options available for PVS Pathway engagement by its Member Countries are:

  • One Health Integration
  • PVS Pathway Veterinary Legislation Support Programme
  • PVS Sustainable Laboratory Support
  • Veterinary and veterinary paraprofessional education
  • Veterinary Statutory Body (VSB) support
  • Workforces development through OIE National Focal Points training
  • Public-Private partnership
