About Us

Uganda Veterinary Association (UVA) a legally registered professional association. It boasts of a big membership of more than 987 veterinarians distributed widely throughout the country with some of them holding key decision-making positions in government and other institutions. It is among the biggest and well organized professional associations in the country having a fully fledged secretariat with five operational regional branches. Its main preoccupation is engagement in community development programs; animal welfare; policy advocacy; promotion of professional standards and welfare of its members. To do this, it works with government and several local and international non-governmental organizations and institutions.

UVA is recognized and highly regarded by government, national and international bodies. It therefore associates and partners with a number of national and international bodies e.g. it is a member of the World Veterinary Association; member of the Commonwealth Veterinary Association; member of the Private Sector Foundation Uganda; etc.

Because of the important socio-economic role the animal industry plays in the country and due to the good working relationship with other agencies and bodies in the animal sector, UVA is represented on a number of national committees for policy development.
