World Veterinary Day 2011

World Veterinary Day was instigated by the World Veterinary Association (WVA) in 2000 to be celebrated annually on the last Saturday of April. 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 2011 Award has been delivered at the 30th World Veterinary Congress to be held in Cape Town, South Africa on 10-14 October 2011.

The prize: US$ 1,000 will be donated to the winner.
