The primary activity of STVM is to sponsor a scientific meeting every 2 years at which time the latest advances in all aspects of tropical veterinary medicine, from treatment and control of animal diseases to trade regulations, are presented to an international audience. The meetings also promote international information exchange and collaboration. Meetings have been held in different locations around the world and are hosted locally by national agricultural organizations.
