One Health Central and Eastern Africa (OHCEA) is an international university network; currently of twenty-four institutions constituted by higher education institutions in public health, veterinary medicine, pathobiology, global health and environmental science. These are located in 16 universities in 8 countries in Eastern, Central and Western African regions. For more details about the network visit our website www.ohcea.org
OHCEA acknowledges the increasing demand to promote One Health Workforce development services beyond the traditional One Health disciplines and institutions, and on the continent beyond the current member countries.
OHCEA has received a 5-year USAID sub-award funded through a consortium led by the University of California Davis to implement the One Health Workforce – Next Generation (OHW Next-Gen) Project. Under OHW-NG, the university networks will continue to provide multisectoral education and training to build these One Health core competencies among the future and current workforces. Additionally, there will be an expanded scope to 1) target sub- national (e.g., regional, provincial, districtlevel) agriculture, forestry, wildlife, and public health officials, veterinary and public health paraprofessionals, as well as allied health professionals, 2) engage with technical and vocational training institutions as well as schools and faculties outside the “traditional” One Health disciplines, and 3) provide continuing education and teaching for adult learners.
To implement the network’s Strategic Plan and project objectives, OHCEA is in the process of recruiting a qualified individual to fill the position of Country Manager for DRC.
