The WVA is a federation of over 80 national veterinary medical associations throughout the World. We also have regional, specialist, and observer veterinary association members.
The WVA is the internationally recognized representative of global veterinary medicine. It was founded in 1863 in Hamburg, Germany, but was completely reorganized in 1997. The WVA has collaborative agreements with the OIE, FAO and WHO.
Important is the World Veterinary Congress [WVC] every two years. In 2013 WVA will celebrate its 150th anniversary with a WVC in Prague, Czech Republic.
