The spillover of infectious agents from animals to humans in recent decades has had a significant impact on the health of humans, animals, and our environment. To minimize the impact of future pandemic threats, the Southeast Asia One Health University Network (SEAOHUN) was established in 2011 to develop the next generation of skillful and competent One Health (OH) workforce with support from the U.S. Agency for International Development and its One Health Workforce Next Generation project.
Since its establishment, SEAOHUN has expanded network membership from 10 universities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam to 81 universities in seven countries, including the four founding countries plus Cambodia, Lao PDR, and the Philippines collaborating to improve One Health workforce capacity with cross-sectoral competencies to effectively prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats.
