  • Ecohealth is useful for addressing health and environmental issues in developing countries, in particular in South East Asia (SEA) where agricultural intensification processes have profound implications for ecosystems and health. However, using the ecohealth approach to comprehensively tackle complex issues requires individual, institutional and country capacity in understanding and applying this approach within the context of the region. The newly developed program Field Building Leadership Initiative: advancing ecohealth in SEA (FBLI) aims at building the field of ecohealth by integrating research, training, policy and networking to focus on solving human health problems associated with agricultural intensification in SEA countries. This program is supported by International Development Research Center (IDRC, Canada) and implemented by a Regional Core Group – comprising representatives from a consortium of seven partner institutions from Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and China with solid experience in ecohealth – will implement the program in close collaboration with national partners, other regional and global ecohealth networks.

    The program is looking for a Ph.D candidate to be an active member of the research team.

  • The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development ( MARD) in partnership with the Ministry of Health , the Embassy of the United States of America, the United Nation organizations in Vietnam i.e., the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization held the national conference on applying One Health approach in Vietnam in Hanoi on 2nd and 3rd April 2013.

  • International Development Research Center (IDRC) Ecohealth Program Leader Dr. Dominique Charron paid a visit to the HSPH and its Center of Public Health and Ecosystem Research Center (CENPHER) on  4th February 2013. 

  • Since the recent outbreaks of H5N1 and SARS in Vietnam, One Health and Ecohealth have been the key approaches not only in controlling diseases and bringing resources from human and animal health sectors but also in mobilizing the participation of many stakeholders from varied sectors. Currently, communication and exchange between One Health and Ecohealth activities in Vietnam are not occurring frequently. Therefore, we believe that gathering all forces from all of the programs, projects, and initiatives of One Health and Ecohealth in the country would have a greater impact in improving human, animal, environmental health. In this view, we proposed  a briefing for One Health and Ecohealth in Vietnam  (OHECO). 

  • The project ‘Field Building Leadership Initiative (FBLI): Advancing Ecohealth in South East Asia’ is a joint project of different partner countries and funded by the International Development Research Center (IDRC), Canada. In Vietnam it is implemented by the Center for Public Health and Ecosystem Research (CENPHER), under the Hanoi School of Public Health (HSPH) in Hanam province, with the research titled: ‘Using Ecohealth Approach for a Better Management of Livestock Waste in Hanam Province, Vietnam’. The first FBLI Vietnam Stakeholder Workshop was held in Hanam province, Vietnam from 19th to 20th January 2013. The workshop aimed to gain the consultations of different related stakeholders on the research plan of FBLI Vietnam.


  • Peer reviewed publication is perhaps the most important “currency” for a successful scientific career.  However, as a norm, most scientific manuscripts are rejected for publication in high-profile journals, and the rate of rejection appears to be higher among Non-English speaking background (NESB) authors.  In this seminar, Prof. Nguyen Van Tuan will review and elaborate on reasons of rejection by drawing from recently published studies. The seminar will take place from 9am onward, Thursday 10 January 2013 at Hanoi School of Public Health. 

  • From the 22 to 23 November and 26 to 27 November, two workshops were jointly held in the provinces of Hung Yen and Nghe An respectively by the Hanoi University of Agriculture (HUA), Hanoi School of Public Health (HSPH), and International Research Livestock Institute (ILRI). Funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), the common purpose of the two workshops was to collect information from related stakeholders and to perform Rapid Value Chain Assessment (RVCA) and Rapid Integrated Assessment (RIA) on the livestock industry of those provinces under the umbrella of the ‘Reducing disease risk and improving food safety in smallholder pig value chains in Vietnam’ project.

  • The workshop was completed successfully last week (28 November) with a number of great contributions from all participants and collaborators.

    This international workshop is organized by the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE), Hanoi; MIVEGEC, UMR CNRS-IRD-Universities Montpellier 1 and 2, centre IRD, Montpellier; CENPHER, Hanoi School of Public Health; UMMISCO UMI IRD-UPMC, Hanoi.


  • The world’s poorest people also carry the heaviest burden from diseases that infect both humans and animals, according to a study published on 5 July 2012. The report identifies 13 such ‘zoonotic’ diseases, including tuberculosis, anthrax and hepatitis E, which together cause 2.4 billion cases of human illness and 2.2 million deaths each year, mostly in low- and middle-income nations.

  • The 3rd ICRD on Research for Global Transformation is the NCCR North-South's final major event, and, as such, was a showcase for what the 12-year programme has achieved since its launch in 2001.
