Following advice from its Ukrainian counterpart, the USAVA, the BSAVA is offering free overseas membership to support Ukrainian veterinary professionals.
Ukrainian veterinary professionals will have complimentary access to Congress on Demand content, and BSAVA Collections, as well as all other perks included in BSAVA membership. It is hoped that the information will help veterinary surgeons working in challenging conditions in Ukraine, support those working outside of their country for the first time, and help to keep those who are unable to work involved in the profession.
BSAVA president Sheldon Middleton said: "As an education charity we are limited in how we can utilise our funds in this situation but the USAVA told us that access to education resources would be valuable not only to vets still in Ukraine but also to so many of those who are now refugees."
