14th AAVS / 6th SEAVSA 2015


Dear Deans and Colleagues,


I am very delighted to inform you that the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Kasetsart University, Thailand has been honored to host the 14th Asian Association of Veterinary School (AAVS) Congress in conjunction with the 6th South East Asia Veterinary School Association (SEAVSA) Meeting 2015 under the theme of 'Veterinary Education and Veterinary Challenges in One Health/Aging Pets' during December 11th-13th, 2015 at the Regent Chaam Beach Resort, Hua Hin-Cha Am, Thailand.

Harmonization of Veterinary Education among member institutions has been the focal point of mission and discussion of the AAVS/SEAVSA steering committees for the past few years.  An international agency, like OIE Sub-Regional Representative for South-East Asia, has also been very keen in supporting the AAVS/SEAVSA member institutions for the improvement and standardization of veterinary education.  To keep the continuity, this year, several key institutions are willing to share the updated information and their working strategy toward veterinary education quality assurance and accreditation.

To achieve the goals of ‘One Health’, veterinary educational institutions must raise the awareness among its staffs and students on the importance of participatory, multidisciplinary and cross-cultural working skills since a healthy balance of animal-human-environment linkage obviously requires more significant players than veterinarian alone.  The outbreaks of Ebola in West African countries in the past year (including the issue of proper handling of pet animals involved) drew many critics and challenges for the suitable control measures to prevent a widespread of transmission of such dreadful disease.  Small scale farming and back yard animal rearing are common features of Agricultural farmlands in most part of Asia, accentuating the close proximity and interaction between human, animals and environments.  In light of these, prominent speakers are invited to share their expertise and field experiences addressing various aspects of ‘One Health’ working approach.

‘Aging Society’ is not limited to the human topography of many countries in Asia, ‘aging pets’ have become an imperative part of ‘Human Society’ and a big profile of veterinary practices as well.  Apparently, advanced treatment together with individualistic care protocol are crucial and more sophisticated for these aging animals.  The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange current scientific information and working experiences among interested participants.

Again, dear Deans and colleagues, I would like to beg for your kind assistance in distributing the news of this exciting conference among your colleagues and fellow veterinarians.  Please observe the following deadlines:

Abstract Submission:  November 10th, 2015
