About Us

The Malaysia One Health University Network (MyOHUN), was initiated in 2012 as a part of the regional network of Southeast Asia One Health University Network (SEAHOUN). This network was built to promote the philosophy and spirit of One Health in working together to respond to new and emerging diseases.

The concept of One Health in Malaysia aims to forge collaborations between academicians, professionals, scientists and communities across sectors with responsibility for health of humans, domestic animals and wildlife. Through this collaboration, cross- sectoral skills and knowledge will be fostered thus enhances the capacity of health and veterinary professionals to respond to emerging infectious and zoonotic diseases through One Health leadership, curriculum development, faculty linkages and exchanges, workshop, staff development and mentoring between institutions.

MyOHUN at present comprises of two core national universities namely Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). These universities serve to build and expand the network to other universities in Malaysia to ensure its sustainability. It is the vision of this network to strengthen the One Health concept in its education and training to enhance the local capacity and collaboration amongst the national universities, private institutions and government agencies in the fields of veterinary medicine, medicine and environmental and health sciences.

To facilitate the coordination and organization of activities in MyOHUN, the National Coordinating Office (NCO) was recently established and is currently located at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). Should there be any enquiries regarding MyOHUN, please do not hesitate to communicate with the office.
