Established in 2011 with support of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Southeast Asia One Health University Network (SEAOHUN)’s vision is to become a regional network of social and intellectual excellence on One health working to reduce infectious disease threats by fostering academic partnerships with government, national and regional stakeholders in Southeast Asia to advance the development of One Health workforce in Southeast Asia.
SEAOHUN was founded by 10 universities and 14 faculties of the four independent country networks in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam that are collaborating to build the next generation of skillful and competent One Health professionals to combat new, emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. To support and assure the long-term sustainability of the Network, SEAOHUN has officially registered as a foundation in Thailand since August 2014 with a secretariat office in Bangkok before moving its operation to Chiang Mai in May 2015. In seven years, SEAOHUN has expanded its membership to comprise 67 universities, 120 faculties and government agencies from the four member countries. Additionally, SEAOHUN expanded its source of funding form only the USAID to Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in 2017 through the One Health Workforce and U.S. Department of State (DOS) in 2018 and expanded its One Health workforce activities beyond the four-member countries to Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Myanmar.
SEAOHUN collaborates with each country network to enhance the capacity of the current and future workforce in using One Health approaches to prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats. The four One Health University networks (OHUNs) are Indonesia One Health University Network (INDOHUN), Malaysia One Health University Network (MyOHUN), Thailand One Health University Network (THOHUN), and Vietnam One Health University Network (VOHUN).
SEAOHUN’s key function is to encourage and facilitate collaborative activities and projects among network members with an emphasis on trans-disciplinary and trans-boundary partnerships. Programming includes, but is not limited to, supporting student and staff exchange, curriculum development, strengthening and developing teaching methodologies, and developing research capacity building and innovative projects that provide evidence-based One Health data and outcomes for advocacy with government and other collaborating partner agencies.
