The aim of WSAVA Foundation is to fund selective scientific, educational and training projects that will be delivered by clinical and laboratory specialists for the benefit of practicing veterinarians globally.
Our ultimate goal is raising the level of patient care for companion animals and public health around the World.
WSAVA ONE HEALTH COMMITTEE
WSAVA ONE HEALTH COMMITTEE: THE HUMAN-COMPANION ANIMAL BOND
WSAVA ONE HEALTH COMMITTEE: COMPARATIVE AND TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE
Advances in genomic technology now mean that unparalleled value can be obtained from this area of comparative medicine. The WSAVA One Health Committee promotes and endorses high quality comparative and translational research of naturally occurring disease in companion animal populations. The Committee supports research performed in a clinical patient-based setting with appropriate legal and ethical approval.
WSAVA ONE HEALTH COMMITTEE: ZOONOTIC INFECTIOUS DISEASE
The committee appreciates that there are already many excellent initiatives related to key zoonotic diseases, and in particular rabies. Whilst the committee endorses and supports such initiatives, it recognizes that it does not have the resource or time to allocate to developing its own major new projects.
The committee recognizes the significant lack of co-ordinated small companion animal zoonotic disease surveillance internationally and is producing a position paper on this topic.
The strength of the WSAVA lies in scientific education and communication and in order to conform to this strength the most relevant output from this committee will be in the provision of quality information for the global practitioner network. This will be provided via the medium of these webpages and the WSAVA One Health Facebook page.
