The Scientific Society on Equine Health (WVGP vzw) was founded in 2005 by a group of equine veterinarians who were active within the professional organization Flemish Veterinary Association (VDV). This group organized an annual study afternoon for all veterinarians interested in equine health. The foundation of the WVGP was primarily intended to separate this afternoon study from the interests of the professional association. Since December 2017, the WVGP has the status of 'non-profit association'. In the coming years, the WVGP vzw wants to further profile itself as a reliable scientific source of information for equine veterinarians, partly through this website.
