In 2017, the OIE surveyed its 181 Member Countries and private entities on their experience with Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in the veterinary domain. Through its 10-year experience with the PVS program, the OIE is convinced of the potential of PPPs to improve the quality of Veterinary Services worldwide, while building robust and sustainable animal health systems contributing to the health and well-being of human populations.

Thanks to the OIE survey, around 100 success stories were identified, their benefits and impact, as well as key challenges. Their analysis produced a global typology of PPPs in the veterinary domain.
