With content in six languages, the app delivers mobile access to a wealth of COVID-19 knowledge resources developed by WHO, including up-to-the-minute guidance, tools, training, and virtual workshops to support health workers in caring for patients infected by COVID-19 and protect themselves as they do their critical work.
The app was created in direct response to an online survey of health works conducted by the WHO Academy in March and April, to which we received more than 20,000 responses. It provides detailed information and tools addressing key areas of concerns for health workers responding to the outbreak:
- Infection prevention control
- Case management
- Use of personal protective equipment
- Staff safety and health
- Risk communication & community engagement
