A SPANA Morocco vet using microscope

Our research generates the evidence we need to inform our decisions and policies.

This ensures that our veterinary programmes have the greatest impact possible and lead to long-term improvements in animal welfare.

We work in partnership with universities, organisations and individuals all around the world to achieve these aims.

We seek to underpin all our veterinary programmes with evidence-based approaches and utilize a number of different research methodologies providing evidence to address specific problems encountered by our projects overseas.

Peer reviewed papers include:
