Southeast Asia One Health University Network (SEAOHUN) is a regional network of over 102 universities in 8 Southeast Asian countries: Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. SEAOHUN advocates the role of universities to a) build the capacity of professionals across sectors to solve complex One Health issues, b) conduct research for evidence-based decision-making, and c) assist governments with public health surge capacity.
Southeast Asia One Health Workforce Academies (SEA-OHWA) is an online platform offering competency-based training, and continuous professional development under the SEAOHUN Transition Award (TA) project supported by USAID. This platform has adopted the concept from the One Health Workforce Academies (OHWA) developed by the USAID One Health Workforce – Next Generation (OHW-NG) project. SEA-OHWA is designed to expand access and promote local expertise within the SEAOHUN member countries' specific contexts. Therefore, courses and materials in SEA-OHWA encourage the content in local languages, catering to frontline health professionals, students in health-related disciplines, and One Health interested individuals.
To enrich the offerings of the SEA-OHWA platform and provide a broader range of educational online resources to its learners, SEAOHUN is extending an invitation for proposals to create One Health online courses for the SEA-OHWA platform. SEAOHUN invites proposals from individuals, organizations, or agencies to create One Health online courses for the SEA-OHWA platform. These courses will encompass a comprehensive array of online learning components, such as course materials, lecture videos, animation videos, interactive learning elements, case scenarios, role-play exercises, assessments and quizzes.
