December 5, 2022 is International Volunteer Day.
One Planet, One Health
Using a One Health approach, Veterinarians Without Borders Canada works for, and with, communities in need to foster the health of animals, people and the environments that sustain us.
We work in Africa and Asia to improve the living conditions of the most disadvantaged rural populations through veterinary and agricultural services, sustainable animal production, training, value chain development and sustainable natural resource management.
Additionally, we support remote Northern Canadian communities to improve animal health through temporary spay and neuter clinics, reduce the spread of rabies, and work to create the conditions for long-term, community-led sustainable animal health services.
Healthy People, Healthy Animals, Healthy Environment
- To ensure better living conditions for the most vulnerable populations.
- To promote food and nutrition security and safety through veterinary care and knowledge.
- To support agroecological production models, promoting a healthy and sustainable relationship between humans, animals, and their environment.
The healthy and sustainable relationship between humans, animals and their environment is of the utmost importance for the livelihoods and living conditions of all people. Food and nutrition security and food safety through veterinary care and knowledge are crucial for improving the livelihoods of vulnerable populations.
