Helping Rural Communities Access Veterinary Care | Peru 2020

One of the highlights of World Vets veterinary field work is our community outreach clinics. These engagements provide a rewarding opportunity for volunteers to interact with local members in the communities we serve as well as their animals.

This activity has been a staple of our International Veterinary Medicine (IVM) Program, much to our student volunteers delight. While these mobile clinics provide an enriching volunteer experience, they also have a positive impact on rural communities by making quality care and veterinary services more accessible.

As part of community outreach, volunteers are involved in assisting with health consultations and administering vaccines and preventative health care to a variety of animal species. We also equip ourselves with basic medical supplies to address a range of medical conditions in the field.
