Vale Sir Dawda Jawara

It’s with great sadness that we mourn the death of Sir Dawda Jawara, a veterinarian who was the first President of Gambia, the first President of the Commonwealth Veterinary Association (from 1967 – 1984) and the Patron of the Commonwealth Veterinary Association.

Our condolences go to his family and to the people of Gambia, and it is a moment to also give thanks for his vision and massive contribution to his country, his veterinary community, the CVA and Beyond.
