Job Vacancy: Gender Consultant



Since its establishment, SEAOHUN has expanded network membership from 10 universities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam to over 95 universities in eight countries, including the four founding countries plus Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and the Philippines. The expansion was made possible with the support of Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), U.S. Department of State (DOS) through its Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI), and USAID. Our university members come from multiple disciplines connected to the health of humans, animals, and their ecosystem.


On 1 October 2022, SEAOHUN received the “SEAOHUN Transition Award” Cooperative Agreement from USAID. The goal is to develop and strengthen a local One Health workforce with the capacity to prepare, prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease outbreaks and complex health challenges in the Southeast Asia region. As a part of the award, SEAOHUN has to develop a gender action plan (GAP) informing the technical approach as it relates to gender throughout all project activities to reduce opportunity gaps between men and women or address power differentials to promote gender equity. Recognizing gender as the cross-cutting issue in One Health, it is crucial for SEAOHUN to integrate gender considerations at every level from planning, policy development, program implementation to program evaluation.


The gender action plan should be developed in conjunction with the monitoring, evaluation and learning plan. SEAOHUN upholds the vision of the USAID Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Policy where women and girls, men and boys, and gender diverse individuals enjoy equal rights and agency; have equitable access to quality education and health care; accumulate and control their own assets; exercise their own voice; and live free from restrictive gender norms and violence.
