WSAVA to extend 'One Care' project to new regions

News Story 1
 Following the success of WSAVA's 'One Care' initiative in Asia, the organisation plans to extend it to new regions. The project has been running for three years and aims to improve standards of care in countries where companion animal practice is still emerging. Among other successes, in the past 12 months, One Care has seen the Veterinary Practitioners of Thailand develop its own hospital standards, and the Philippines Animal Hospital Association develop an animal welfare assessment framework.

One Care leader Dr Siraya Chunekamrai is planning an initiative with the Cambodian Veterinary Medical Association, which is keen to develop the profession in the country during 2017.
