About UVB
The Uganda Veterinary Board is the profession regulatory body established by an Act of Parliament (The Veterinary Surgeons Act 1958, Cap 277). It is composed of a team of seven veterinarians in good standing in the profession and of high repute in the country. They are appointed by the Minister of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries with approval of Cabinet. Its major mandate is to ensure that animal health services are offered by qualified, registered and licensed veterinary professionals under their regulatory supervision. To do this, the Board runs several activities including, but not limited to, registration of professionals and their premises of practice; establishment of standards for training, practice and professional conduct of veterinary professionals; provision of guidance and support for continuing professional development programmes and community education.
