“SAALAS is a non-profit association who’s aim is to advance LAS in South Africa and on the African continent. While it should always be our primary aim to replace animals with non-animals models for research, until that day arrives in totality we have a duty to openly discuss the reasons for animal use in conjunction with furthering the implementation of the 4Rs in animal research.  SAALAS is honoured to join the BOARD23 initiative for the first time and support the South African LAS community in learning to be more open when discussing the benefits and limitations of animal and non-animal models in research. Such conversations can drive change.”

EARA’s third edition of ‘Be Open About Animal Research Day’ (#BOARD23) will take place on Thursday 15 June 2023.
