Charmaine Tham is a veterinarian in Australia, but grew up as a self-confessed irresponsible pet owner in Singapore. She contributes probono as Vice President on the board of Vets Beyond Borders, an Australian-based non-profit organisation that provides veterinary aid to partners in developing communities. She has been closely involved in international animal welfare and public health projects in a probono capacity since 2006, with experiences in India, China, Vanuatu and the Northern Territory. Her professional background is in veterinary science, pharmacology and business management with experiences in private practice, industry and academia. She is currently working as a veterinary consultant in the pharmaceutical industry.
Vets Beyond Borders' VetTrain program is going beyond implementing rabies control programs to giving local communities the tools, skills and motivations to create the change for themselves.
