JMICAWE at The Veterinary Council of India

Last week, our own Prof Nat Waran was in India meeting with The Veterinary Council of India and The Ministry of Agriculture to discuss animal welfare education and research. This follows on from various previous interactions and activities to highlight the importance of an evidence-based approach to dealing with animal welfare issues, and the need for capacity-building for vets working as veterinary lecturers and researchers. The outcome of last week's meetings was very positive with commitments being made by the Veterinary profession and requests from the Indian Government in relation to animal welfare training to achieve international standards. The Jeanne Marchig International Animal Welfare Centre will be providing support for capacity building activities over the next year.
