Announcing the 2019 AFSCAN Research Awards

AFSCAN Scientific Research Grants 2019

The African Small Companion Animal Network (AFSCAN), a project of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) Foundation, works to raise standards of veterinary care in Sub-Saharan Africa through enhancing the education offered to veterinarians. It is also capacity building through facilitating the creation of a sustainable network of companion animal veterinary associations and specialist groups.

 

We are pleased to announce the fourth year of our AFSCAN Scientific Research Grants. These Grants will support the training and development of both veterinary students and academics working in Africa today and, we hope, inspire a new generation of African veterinary researchers and future educators from Africa. Importantly, we hope that they will also increase the current knowledge base of diseases and welfare issues affecting companion animals in African and build links between African veterinary researchers and laboratories around the world.
