Boosting One Health Expertise within ASEAN partner governments

The ASEAN- Australia One Health Fellowship Program was established in 2021 at Murdoch University with funding from the Australian Government under the ASEAN Partnerships for Recovery.

The program aims to strengthen regional One Health technical capacity and coordination with an emphasis on supporting ASEAN’s regional public health and health security agenda.

It is expected that Fellows will be able to better address specific zoonotic risk factors in our region. A One Health approach recognises that the health of people, animals and the environment are all interconnected.

It will support 40 One Health fellowships for eligible ASEAN member state officials with expertise in epidemiology, public health, animal health, environmental health, wildlife medicine, health economics, and biosecurity.

The non-residential Fellowship is for 2.5 years and comprises three components: online training, fellows’ mentorship program and hands-on research projects.

The ASEAN- Australia One Health Fellowship Program is pleased to invite nominations including self-nominations with a letter of support.

Applications extended to December 6!
