DCA-VET is a non-governmental organization helping to rebuild Afghanistan. Being a veterinary oriented organization, DCA-VET commits itself to improve the health and productivity of the Afghan livestock. With its activities, DCA-VET is reaching a large part of the people in Afghanistan, since about 80% of them are more or less dependent on livestock. Since its foundation in 1994, DCA-VET and similar organisations strive to build up a nation-wide system of private veterinary field units. Our ultimate aim is that all livestock owners in Afghanistan have easy access to high quality veterinary care for their animals, and can rely on healthy and productive animals for a proper livelihood.
