This year marks the 250th birthday of the veterinary profession. The European Commission’s Directorate General for Health and Consumer Policy (DG SANCO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) join forces to organise a series of events to celebrate the anniversary and highlight the diverse role of veterinarians across the world. Their partnership begins with the dissemination of six video clips promoting the profession to the public.

During the World Veterinary Year 2011, veterinary institutions will organise national events to raise public awareness about the importance of their profession and as a reminder that veterinarians have been serving humankind for 250 years. On this occasion DG SANCO and the OIE have decided to join forces in order to highlight the wide and varied role vets play in our daily lives.

The opening ceremony will take place on the 24th January in Versailles, in the country where the profession was born. The world’s first veterinary school was founded in Lyon, France, in 1761, under the impulsion of French veterinarian Claude Bourgelat.
