World Vets team for the first rotation of the Pacific Partnership 2012 mission is now on board the USNS MERCY. They have quickly gotten to work preparing their presentations and lectures that will be given in the four host nations to be visited; Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia. These presentations are commonly referred to as SMEE’s – Subject Matter Expert Exchanges. As such, our team will not only be providing direct veterinary aid on this mission, but will also be educating on various topics and issues relating to veterinary medicine.
Pacific Partnership is an annual humanitarian aid mission operated by the US Navy in collaboration with host and partner nations, foreign military and medical personnel as well as non governmental organizations. In a joint effort, medical, dental and veterinary assistance is provided.
