Nepal Veterinary Association has decided to celebrate World Veterinary Day 2012 in Kathmandu on 28th April 2012 under global theme "Antimicrobial Resistance".
In addition separate celebrations will be held at all the regional headqaurters. Antimicrobials have revolutionised medical and veterinary practice since their introduction more than 60 years ago. Today they are essential tools for ensuring health and welfare of animals.
Nepal Veterinary Association strongly advocates for better registration, import, distribution and on field use of antimicobials in the country. NVA urges all stakeholders involved to harmonise national antimicrobial resistance related programs.
