Strengthening Health Workforce Capacity through Nusa Bersama

Collaboration, coordination and leadership training in global health using One Health concept is truly relevant and useful for tackling emerging infectious diseases. Therefore, discussion about the implementation of One Health that calls for human development is very important in Indonesia. Since One Health Concept uses multi-sectoral, this strategy is very crucial for encouraging cross-sectoral and cross-disciplinary power capacity.

Health workforce, including stakeholders, academics, students, and public, needs to improve the skills to prevent, support and respond to infectious diseases. The capacity to collaborate is also greatly needed by professionals such as medicine, public health experts, nursing, veterinary medicine and environmental health experts.

In order to answer the big question, the Indonesia One Health University Network (INDOHUN) held an event called Nusa Bersama. We invited multisector stakeholders from government, NGO, institution, and public participation to gather in Nusa Bersama on Thursday, September 26th 2019 from 8.30 am until 12.45 pm in Balai Sidang Universitas Indonesia, Depok, West Java

Our big goal in this particular event is to create a space where stakeholders to coordinate, communicate, and establish strategic plans to accelerate capacity building of Human Resources in Indonesia on an ongoing basis. Other than providing a place to network, we also presented our study on One Health Workforce development in Indonesia, national and international multisector coordination and collaboration, and also discussed about how to build sustainable collaboration center. We also provided panel discussion on communication, coordination, and collaboration between government and institutions in accelerating One Health Workforce capacity building in Indonesia.

We are deeply thankful for everyone who attended the event. We hope that this event has inspired us to disseminate One Health to even wider audience and created new opportunities, connections, and collaborations in the future.
