Veterinary Services

Supporting National Veterinary Services

Veterinary Services, in both their public and private components, play an essential role in the development and implementation of policies to manage animal health risks.

Capacity Building for National Veterinary Services is one of the strategic objectives of the OIE. Strengthening the capacity of OIE Members’ Veterinary Services is important to achieve the improvement of animal health, veterinary public health and animal welfare, while improving their ability to participate in the development of international standards and guidelines on these matters.

Regional Activities

The OIE activities in Asia and the Pacific region to support national Veterinary Services include PVS pathway related activities, workshops for veterinary education establishments and veterinary statutory bodies and capacity building activities directed at national Delegates and National Focal points for disease information, wildlife, aquatic animals, animal welfare, food safety, communication, veterinary drugs and laboratories, and animal welfare related issues.
