Southeast Asia One Health University Network - SEAOHUN

Southeast Asia One Health University Network - SEAOHUN

SEAOHUN is a regional network of 95 universities in eight Southeast Asian countries: Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam, plus 6 universities in Taiwan. Our mission is to develop a resilient and competent One Health workforce to effectively prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats by leveraging education, research, and training excellence. SEAOHUN advocates for the role of universities to build the capacity of professionals across sectors---working with government agencies, international and regional organizations, development aid agencies, the private sector, leading academic and research institutions, and non-governmental organizations to equip future leaders with One Health competencies. Faculty members, researchers, and students of SEAOHUN member universities contributed to COVID-19 testing efforts and provided training on risk communication and community engagement, surveillance and rapid response, and infection prevention and control. Through the USAID One Health Workforce and One Health Workforce – Next Generation projects, our member universities have promoted and equipped health professionals with One Health competencies, and some have successfully institutionalized the One Health concept into their curricular offerings. We are thankful for the support of USAID and the One Health Workforce – Next Generation consortium that is enabling us to strengthen health professionals with the right skill sets and mindset to lessen the impact of COVID-19 and stop other future pandemics.
