With over 17 universities and 4 government agencies, we provide national and regional capacity building activities, research, and continuous professional development for students and professionals across sectors and industries through collaborative multidisciplinary teams of experts

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).

Our Mission

To link and enable universities, government and relevant agencies to generate social and intellectual capital on One Health against infectious and zoonotic disease.

Our Vision

Network of social and intellectual excellence on One Health against infectious and zoonotic disease of national and global concern.

Value Proposition

Combatting zoonotic & infectious disease at their source:  MYOHUN is the longest serving national platform for building capacity of students, faculty, and professionals to work across disciplines and sectors for the improved response to One Health related threats.

One Health

One Health

One Health is an approach to healthcare that recognizes the interconnections between human health, animal health, and environmental health. It recognizes that the health of humans, animals, and the environment are interconnected, and seeks to address health issues at the intersection of these three areas. The One Health approach aims to promote collaboration and cooperation among different sectors and disciplines to address health threats that cross species and geographic boundaries. This approach is commonly applied in areas such as zoonotic diseases, food safety, and antimicrobial resistance.

One Health Quadripartite

The health of humans, animals, and the environment are interconnected and that efforts to promote health and prevent disease must involve collaboration among the four key sectors: human medicine, veterinary medicine, environmental science, and agriculture. These four sectors are closely related and their interactions have a direct impact on the health of people, animals, and the environment. Therefore, the quadripartite approach to One Health focuses on the integration and cooperation between these four sectors to achieve optimal health outcomes for all.

      2022 Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Challenge FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific Social Media Contest


      Everyone can suffer from a serious infection that can only be treated with antimicrobials. For the year 2019, it was estimated that 1.27 million human deaths were attributable to bacterial antimicrobial resistance (AMR) (Murray et al., 2022). Hence, it is essential to preserve the efficacy of antimicrobials.

      Although AMR is a natural phenomenon, its spread has been exacerbated by the misuse of antimicrobials. This situation does not only concerns human medicine, but also the food production sector, which is responsible for a large part of the global antimicrobial use (PhamDuc et al., 2019). Moreover, AMR can transfer between animals, humans, food and the environment. Thus, all animal health actors (veterinarians, para-veterinarians, pharmacists, farmers, employees of food-production industries or pharmaceutical companies, etc.) have a role to play to ensure antimicrobials are used responsibly.

      In this context, the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (RAP) is launching a social media contest with the overall aim to support awareness-raising on the AMR issue. This contest is meant to give a voice to all those  individuals in the food and agriculture sector who are either impacted by AMR or acting at their level to prevent and control the emergence and spread of AMR.


      1. You must be on Twitter or Facebook with a public profile (unprotected tweets or public posts).
      2. Create a short video where you describe your AMR Story. The video must:
        a. Last between 15 seconds and 2 minutes and 20 seconds.
        b. Be in English or with English subtitles.
      3. Post your short video on Twitter or Facebook using #AMRStoryChallenge (see eligibility criteria below).

      If you wonder what could be your AMR story, you may ask yourself some of the below questions:

      • Have you already encountered a situation where an animal was infected by an antimicrobial-resistant bacterium?
      • Do you do anything, in your routine practice, to prevent bacterial infections in animals, so that fewer antimicrobials get used?
      • Do you do anything to use antimicrobials more responsibly?
      • Do you have success stories to share? For example, if you are a farmer who succeeded in reducing antimicrobial use thanks to stronger biosecurity, this is a very interesting success story.

      Every AMR story is valuable. Just be yourself and sincere when preparing your video. Of course, if you can make something fun, this is even better! If you have some tips or practical solutions to prevent and control AMR in livestock in the field, please explain them in your video, we would be very interested to hear about it.

      Please note that each participant must be a citizen of an FAO Member country in Asia and the Pacific. Please also see below for additional eligibility information.

      The top three contestants will receive an iPad Mini!


      A designated panel of judges will score the videos based on:

      • The accuracy of the information provided in the story.
      • The relevance of the experience sharing and proposed tips to prevent and control AMR in the food and agriculture sector.
      • The quality of the video making.

      The contest will run from 5 September, 00.00 to 16 December 2022, 23.59 (UTC +7).

      The three winners will be contacted by FAO for their complete contact details. If a winner cannot be traced or does not respond within 5 days following contact via his/her social media profile, or refuses his/her selection, the selection will be forfeited and the next contestant with the highest average score will be selected.
