With the support of Chevron and the Southeast Asia One Health University Network (SEAOHUN), PhilOHUN organized a Strategic Planning Workshop last 4-5 July 2022 at Microtel by Wyndham Mall of Asia, Pasay City, Philippines.
The main goal of the workshop was to develop a five-year strategic plan to solidify PhilOHUN’s identity as a One Health-centered organization in the Philippines. The members of the network also discussed future resource mobilization, proposal development and work planning. In attendance were representatives from current PhilOHUN member universities (Central Luzon State University, Pampanga State Agricultural University, University of the Philippines Los Baños, University of the Philippines Manila, Visayas State University, University of Eastern Philippines, and Central Mindanao University), Chevron and SEAOHUN. New member universities, Partido State University and West Visayas State University, were also welcomed to PhilOHUN at this time.
The perspectives of all parties were instrumental in developing PhilOHUN’s vision, mission, priority areas, and strategies for the next five years. Elections for PhilOHUN’s first set of officials was conducted, followed by signing of a memorandum of understanding between the founding members of PhilOHUN.
