The VSF International Network
Active in over 40 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the members of the network “Vétérinaires Sans Frontières International” (VSF-Int) work to strengthen small-scale livestock keeping and farming, serving the most vulnerable pastoral and rural populations. VSF-Int seeks to build healthy relationships between people, animals, and the environment. By strengthening veterinary services and improving the wellbeing and resilience of the livestock keepers, VSF-Int enhances food security, food safety and food sovereignty around the globe.
The members of the network coordinate their actions geographically, they pool their resources, and share their skills and experiences, and reinforce the capacities of network members and other partners. They serve pastoral and rural populations and act collectively to advocate in favour of small-scale family farming, livestock keeping, animal and human health, and a healthy environment.
