Health Professionals

Calling on Doctors, Nurses, Veterinarians and all Health Care Professionals!

The philosophy of Humane Research Australia is that opposition to animal experimentation is not just an ethical issue – it has a scientific basis too. We recognise that data obtained from animal experiments cannot be extrapolated to human conditions with a sufficient degree of accuracy and so it’s therefore crucial that if we genuinely desire a healthier society we must base medical research on models that accurately mimic the human system, rather than an artificially-induced replica in a different species – species that differ from us anatomically, physiologically and genetically.

We are seeking the support of doctors, nurses, veterinarians and all health care professionals to show the public that our concerns are credible, scientific, ethical and backed by scientific experts.

Please therefore consider joining the following (local and international) professionals by downloading and signing our Pledge of Support for the work of HRA to voice your opposition to the use of animals in research and to publicly support the work of Humane Research Australia.
