VOHUN’s communication activities are carried out through 2 channels of information: One Health Newsletter and the VOHUN website (at http://vohun.org) in two versions in Vietnamese and English.

One health newsletter is a brief summary of VOHUN activities at home and abroad. Information includes research, training, communication about One Health by VOHUN or VOHUN’s partners. The first issue of One Health News published in the first quarter of 2012, then maintained its quarterly launch. The newsletter can be accessed via http://vohun.org/ban-tin.

VOHUN website is initially set up to: i) Introduce the functions, visions, tasks and goals of VOHUN to Government agencies, partners and other stakeholders in One Health field; ii) A tool to help VOHUN members update and share information on activities; iii) Contribute to communicating the concept of One Health and One Health approach to the community.
