BACKGROUND

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 project.

Since its establishment, SEAOHUN has expanded network membership from 10 universities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam to 72 universities in six countries, including the four founding countries plus Cambodia and Lao PDR. The expansion was made possible with the support of Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and U.S. Department of State (DOS) through its Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI). Universities in Myanmar and the Philippines have established their One Health university networks and will soon join SEAOHUN. Our university members come from multiple disciplines connected to the health of humans, animals, and the environment.

Our educational programs promote and facilitate collaborative activities and projects among the countries with an emphasis on improving One Health workforce capacity with cross-sectoral competencies to effectively prevent, detect, and respond to all hazards and emerging threats. Examples of our educational initiatives include the development of One Health core and technical competencies, curriculum development and strengthening, introducing innovative teaching methodologies such as One Health problem-based learning cases, building research capacity to provide an evidence-base for One Health advocacy, One Health student clubs, and scholarship and fellowship programs to support long-term capacity development.

The SEAOHUN Secretariat based in Chiang Mai, Thailand, is a coordinating body of all the country networks. The Secretariat facilitates SEAOHUN Executive Board meetings, regional activities, and fosters the establishment of One Health university networks in Southeast Asia and partnership with national, international and non-governmental organizations collaborating to combat all hazards and emerging threats. The Secretariat represents interests of its country networks at regional meetings/conferences/forums of Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) Detect 1 and Detect 5 packages, ASEAN+3 Field Epidemiology Training Network (FETN), the Tripartite (FAO/OIE/WHO), among the others. Since July 2019, SEAOHUN has partnered with Pfizer Thailand to address the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Thailand.
