INDOHUN, as an organization specializing in capacity building for health resources, has been committing to contribute in strengthening the capacity to collaborate and coordinate in term of global health issues in Asia. It aims to introduce the concept of One Health, recognizing that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment, to solve global health problems which combines public health, veterinary health, and environmental health. To achieve the goal of that approach, it needs a strong connection between each sectors and disciplines to collaborate. The background for this action was started when the global communities faced many scary infectious diseases in a large scale. Last of 2014, there was transmission of Ebola virus from animal to human. Furthermore, this phenomenon happened and spread quickly from human to human in Central and West Africa. Those cases showed that diseases are happened without giving alarm to infect some country and entering other countries easily. Therefore, recognition of one country to others is very important to stop the disease. This recognition is called collaboration and coordination among health workforces and health-related sector.
