Indonesia is one of the zoonoses hotspot in the world that has a high risk of transmission of emerging infectious diseases, re-emerging infectious diseases, and potential pandemic diseases. Zoonotic diseases influence the health of humans, animals, and ecosystems, which reviewed from various perspectives, especially the economy of a country, thus requiring cross-sectoral synergistic efforts in preventing and overcoming it.
One of the efforts in addressing the zoonoses problem is to increase countries’ capacity to detect, prevent and respond to zoonoses. Human life sectors needs to implement One Health approach which focuses on collaboration multi-sectoral to control zoonoses problem. Not only in research, but also in an academic course and community. Student needs to understand One Health approach and how to implement the approach into real situation to tackle zoonoses. Researcher needs to do research to find potential diseases and vaccine to protect human and animal. Last, we also need to involve community to implement the good practice of One Health approach in their community.
Indonesia One Health University Network (INDOHUN), a university platform of One Health approach in Indonesia, contributes in enhancing the One Health workforce capacity in teaching, research and community outreach.
