Welcome to GloVANet

WoCoVA has grown in 10 years to much more than just a congress. In order to better organize the efforts and actions in the field of vascular access it was decided that there should be an overarching organization to cover all activities that are nowadays executed. The Global Vascular Access Network (GloVANet) umbrella organization was created with WoCoVA being the largest and most important activity. Other areas which can be found within GloVANet are Education & Training, Data & Research and Other Events and Projects.

GloVANet aims to be the worldwide network to enhance global awareness on vascular access and improve patient care.
