Theme: The Role of the Veterinary Profession in Sustainable Development to improve Livelihoods, Food Security and Safety.
JVMA President's Message
JVMA President 2017-2018 Dr. Nigel Elliott
Once again our local association joins the global community in celebrating World Veterinary Day - a day we are not limited to just recognizing but to see its role in highlighting the many aspects of work our noble profession does. This year, the theme acknowledges “The Role of the Veterinary Profession in Sustainable Development to Improve Livelihoods, Food Security and Safety”, a noteworthy theme the meaning of which I can express by quoting from the World Organization of Animal Health (OIE):
“A large part of the world population lives in rural areas where animals are indispensable for their livelihood and access to food. Many farmers in these areas depend on animals as the main source of income… Furthermore, the veterinary profession is responsible for the control and inspection of animal products at all stages ‘from farm to fork’ to guarantee safe food to the world population”.
This is not far from our local experience where our veterinarians in government, industry and private practice contribute to preventing and controlling animal diseases while playing a crucial role in safeguarding our food and improving the health and welfare of people and animals. Enjoy the day with us.
One Health, One Love. Nigel Elliott (Dr) President JVMA
