In 2008 the WVA and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) agreed on the creation of the World Veterinary Day Award aimed at rewarding the most successful celebration of the veterinary profession by national veterinary associations, alone, or in cooperation with any other selected veterinary body.
The winner will receive 1,000US$ at the 80th OIE General Session to be held in Paris (France) on 20-25 May 2012.
