About the Small Grants

The SEAOHUN Small Grants Program aims to support in-service health professionals and faculty members in the development of research and training that can have high impact. It is expected that small grants will catalyze innovative field research, curriculum development, and training implementation. This initiative provides critical support for member countries’ activities to advance One
Health agendas in respective countries. In addition, it strives to foster multisectoral and multidisciplinary collaboration, as well as cooperation across SEAOHUN member Universities and government agencies of member countries. The proposals can touch upon the broad spectrum of ideas related to the One Health approach, enabling better response to the increasingly complex dilemmas at the convergence of animals, humans, plants, and the environment.

Small Grants Program Objective

To enable in-service health professionals (human health, animal health, and environmental health) at government agencies of member countries and faculty members of the member Universities to develop innovative ideas and implement pilot projects that advance training and education on prioritized One Health core competencies and technical skills.
