About WVAC 2024
World Veterinary Association Congress
The 38th World Veterinary Association Congress will be held from 29 to 31 March 2024 in the United Arab Emirates.
The World Veterinary Association Congress (WVAC) aims to bring together veterinarians from all over the world to exchange experiences and knowledge in the fields of veterinary medicine. The most important themes of the 38th Congress of the World Veterinary Association are clinical veterinary therapy, public veterinary health, animal care, as well as technologies and innovations. The conference did not overlook the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on all areas of work and life, of which veterinary medicine is not an exception, so a space was allocated for it within the axes of Congress.
The Congress is an opportunity to introduce the community and school students in South Africa to veterinary medicine and its importance. The Congress will include more than 108 specialized educational workshops and lectures over the three days, with the attendance of about 40 lecturers from all over the world. Besides this, there will be an accompanying exhibition for veterinary companies, scientific universities, and government agencies. In the field of specialization, they meet together under one roof in the heart of Cape Town.
