The Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) is an executive agency of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). It was formed on 1 April 2011 by a merger of two former agencies, Animal Health and the Veterinary Laboratories Agency. The agency's main task is to protect the health and welfare of animals, as well as the general public, from disease. It conducts work across Great Britain on behalf of DEFRA, the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government.[1]
