Professor Nat Waran appointed as Advisor on Animal Welfare to the Singapore Government
One of the main objectives of the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare in Edinburgh is to provide expertise on animal welfare to help inform Policy and Practice. To this end, we are extremely pleased to report that our JMICAWE Centre Director has recently been appointed to the Singapore Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) Veterinary Advisory Board, to provide recommendations on animal health and welfare issues in the Region. The University of Edinburgh’s Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies receives a significant number of applications from Singapore students wishing to study Vet Med each year, and there are a good number of RDSVS Alumni working in veterinary practices, Government offices and within the animal industry.
This appointment will further cement our excellent working relationship with the veterinary profession in the region and provide opportunities for sharing best practice in animal welfare, as well as learning more about the specific issues Singapore is concerned with.
