April 28, 2018 all-day
World Veterinary Day on April 29, 2017 was started by the World Veterinary Association (WVA) in 2000 to be celebrated annually on the last Saturday of April. Apart from their well-known role as animal doctors, veterinarians create prevention and control programs against infectious diseases, including those transmissible to humans. Much more than that, be it for food security, poverty alleviation, prevention and management of risks at the animal-human interface, animal welfare, scientific research or political commitment, veterinarians operate in all sectors of the society.
