About Us

What We Do

The Veterinary Public Health Association – bringing together veterinary public health professionals from around the world.

The VPHA is a division of the British Veterinary Association and aims to further the advancement of veterinary public health within the UK and abroad.

The Association is made up of veterinarians and allied professionals and is actively involved in the development of legislation, the delivery of training, and the promotion of the role of the veterinarian in public health at all levels.

Our members are professionally engaged, amongst others, in the development of national and community legislation, the delivery of animal and public health official controls, the management of zoonotic disease outbreaks, food animal production, education, research and animal welfare.

The remit of the VPHA covers all aspects of veterinary public health. The Association provides a link between all parts of the veterinary profession forming a common interface between animal health, public health, animal welfare and the environment- fulfilling the one health concept- one health one world.

With members working in Government, academia, industry, general practice and commerce the VPHA represents the needs of all veterinary public health professionals.

VPHA represents its members at a wide variety of fora both nationally as well as internationally through the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe. By maintaining a strong representational role the VPHA ensures that members' interests are protected.
