SEAOHUN Year 1 Transition Award Project Annual Report

The Southeast Asia One Health University Network (SEAOHUN), supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), stands as a cornerstone in bolstering the One Health competencies essential for combating infectious disease threats across Southeast Asia. Collaborating with One Health University Networks in eight countries, SEAOHUN plays a pivotal role in fortifying and expanding the capabilities of the future generation in the field.

Since its inception in 2011, SEAOHUN has been an integral partner in USAID's One Health Workforce initiatives. With the Transition Award, SEAOHUN undertakes direct management of funds from October 2022 to September 2024, enhancing its capacity to handle larger funding allocations in the future. Building on previous projects, SEAOHUN continues to strengthen One Health knowledge management throughout the region, focusing on both pre-service and in-service professionals.

In its inaugural year, the Transition Award yielded significant achievements. Over 100 professionals received training on One Health topics, while 10 scholarships, 11 internships, and 7 student assistantships were provided. Additionally, SEAOHUN initiated 12 projects addressing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and COVID-19. Notably, Dr. Vipat Kuruchittham, Executive Director of the SEAOHUN Secretariat, was appointed to the Quadripartite Working Group on Youth Engagement for AMR, showcasing SEAOHUN's impact and dedication to sustainable initiatives.

SEAOHUN extends its heartfelt gratitude to key stakeholders, including USAID, the OHW-NG Consortium, member countries, and international and local partners, for their unwavering support. Their collaborative efforts are essential in cultivating a proficient One Health workforce capable of effectively addressing infectious disease threats through education, research, and training.
