The global role of the veterinary sector in COVID-19 pandemic responses 

Recent press reports indicate that veterinarians and others working in animal health have been assisting with responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The purpose of this short questionnaire is to document the role of the veterinary sector in COVID-19 responses worldwide. This information will be used to explore the roles and relationships that have been formed during this outbreak, to identify ways to sustain these relationships and build new ones, and to deal with future human, animal or One Health crises.  

Please take a few minutes (less than 10) to fill in the questionnaire and contribute to building stronger and more diverse relationships between people working in human and animal health. You can access the questionnaire using this link: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=yy39LcwGJkW9Jqyu6j0l1LjTZ1usvuJAu2yCqWa4fTxUQUdITDgxTkc1SUdTRVIwNktIU0tRWkRTUiQlQCN0PWcu. The questionnaire is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Korean, Thai, Russian, Arabic and Mandarin.
