Joint USAHA And AAVLD International Standards Committee

The purpose of the Joint USAHA/AAVLD International Standards Committee is to add value to both the USAHA and AAVLD by: educating and creating an awareness among the membership of these organizations on key global, animal health and trade issues; proactively identifying critical issues in the international arena; enhancing the organization's understanding, response, and decision-making ability in these areas; and, enabling both organizations to more effectively use this information to improve their strategies, operation and, ultimately, improve global animal health and security.
