Malaysia one health university network

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.
