Global food security

The AVMA supports the promotion of the veterinary profession's many roles in advancing global food security. To this end, the AVMA will play an active role in leveraging AVMA member expertise in convening meetings, building diverse stakeholder partnerships, and engaging in other opportunities to enhance veterinary involvement in food security.

The AVMA also concurs with the following: "Food security, as defined by the United Nations' Committee on World Food Security, means that all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their food preferences and dietary needs for an active and healthy life."
