Veterinarians are rare in Africa and often unaffordable for small farmers or pastoralists. Therefore, Veterinarians without Borders has enabled young Maasai to be trained as veterinarians to ensure the health of farm animals on site. | © Veterinarians without Borders

Veterinarians play a key role in food safety. Not only are they the first persons to contact whenever the welfare of farm animals is in question. They bear a great responsibility towards society by administering medicines in case of illnesses and not least by inspecting meat of slaughtered animals.

Antibiotic resistances in developing countries are only one example, how serious the consequences...

People in developing countries are particularly vulnerable to food fraud. | © Veterinarians without Borders

For the past few years, Veterinarians without Borders has been on track of global food fraud.

In addition, mothers are often malnourished or HIV positive. To feed their babies, they depend on milk powder. But:...

With heartfelt grief we convey the sad news, that our dear colleague Benoît Maria, employee of our sister organisation AVSF, was killed in Guatemala this week. Benoît had been an enthusiastic advocate for indigenous rights for many years. Our thoughts and our empathy are with him, with his colleagues, but most of all with his wife and his two kids.

A magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook eastern Tanzania Wednesday evening, August 12 2020 and was noticed all the way to Nairobi, Kenya. The epicenter was located 80 km south of Dar es Salaam in the Indian Ocean. Despite the strength, no major damage or injuries are known so far. Luckily there wasn't any tsunami either! As far as we know, our employees and partners are also well!
