The SVF as a Lobby Organisation

The Swedish Veterinary Association (SVF) has an important role to play as a lobby organisation to influence public opinion, and ultimately also political decisions regarding animal health and animal welfare, public health, food safety, and other matters close to the veterinary profession.

When dealing with such questions of current interest, working groups are often set up to penetrate the issues, and to prepare them for decisions by the SVF Executive Board or by the GA.

In addition to these temporary working groups a number of permanent committees have been set up within SVF. These committees should constantly survey and discuss the situation for certain topics, and act when necessary.

An example of such a committee is the Committee on Animal Welfare.
