UEVH is the Union of European Veterinary Hygienists
The first General Assembly of UEVH was held on the 1st July 1967 in Geneva.
During 1976, the Association changed its statutes in order to become eligible for membership of the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe and adopted its current name.
UEVH represents veterinarians working in veterinary public health, having a key role in protecting public and animal health and welfare.
Today UEVH has 21 members and two observers.
Veterinarians for public health
UEVH has twenty one full member delegations representing veterinarians from European countries with, in addition, the World Association of Veterinary Food Hygienists and Argentina attending as observers.
While the majority of delegates are employed in the provision and enforcement of controls along the food chain others come from a background of national and European policy development, research, industry and academia.
Ensuring the health for animals & humans
We live in a rapidly changing world where many people and animals are living closely together and can travel rapidly between countries and continents. Veterinarians, united in UEVH, are at the centre of this world and guard and protect the well-being and welfare of humans and animals. This is achieved by ensuring the safe production of food and feed, and preventing or containing diseases and zoonosis, all in line with the principle of “ One Health”.
UEVH is a member of FVE
FVE is the European representative body for the veterinary profession in Europe. FVE’s mission is to enhance animal health, animal welfare, public health and the protection of the environment by promoting the veterinary profession.
The UEVH Board 2022-2023 consists of a President, a Secretary General, a Treasurer, two Vice-Presidents and a Senior Vice-President.
