In order to better understand the challenges facing the profession – in the context of a shortage of veterinarians – we invite you to respond to the call for contributions to the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion campaign launched by the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) to collect the opinions and reflections of representatives of the veterinary profession on these three principles.

Furthermore, from an animal health perspective, the fight against antimicrobial resistance continues to be a focus at European level. To achieve this, EFSA recently published an opinion recommending measures to reduce the duration of transport and to improve the cleaning of vehicles, equipment and areas where animals are loaded and unloaded. The issue of animal transport is central to the position of some Member States in favour of animal welfare protection.

In effect, this aspect – along with many other key elements for the animal health and welfare sector-  will be included in the review of the EU animal welfare legislation, scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2023, which was reaffirmed as a priority in the 2023 Work Program presented by the European Commission in mid October.
