SEAOHUN’s fellow gains practical experiences without leaving his country
In 2020, we had to find unconventional solutions to continue our work amidst the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19. SEAOHUN’s fellowship program aims to build capacities of young- to md-career One Health professionals by placing them in the sector-leading organizations. The pandemic forced the program to transform, due to travel restrictions, to match potential fellows with leading organizations in their respective countries.
In July 2020, Vietnamese lecturer Tuyen Ha Van applied and received fellowship support from SEAOHUN. His ambitious vision is to help communities in northern, mountainous areas in Vietnam out of poverty through education. Thus, he has dedicated his life to teaching as a lecturer at the Faculty of Resources and Environment Management, Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry (TUAF), for the last 5 years, before taking leave to join the SEAOHUN fellowship.
