EAVLD is a non-profit, independent association with the mission of improving veterinary and public health by providing a platform for communication among veterinary laboratory diagnosticians and to promote the highest standards in European veterinary laboratories.
In 2008 CoVetLab (www.covetlab.org) started an initiative to broaden collaboration on a European level. Modelling itself on the World Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (WAVLD) and the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD), in April 2009 the European Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (EAVLD) was officially formed. The aim was to create an inclusive forum for veterinary laboratory scientists working in all disciplines across the full range of species.
