WHO has launched the WHO Academy app designed to support health workers during COVID-19, and the WHO Info app designed to inform the general public.
The Academy app, launched by the WHO Academy, World Health Organization’s lifelong learning centre, provides health workers with mobile access to a wealth of COVID-19 knowledge resources, developed by WHO, that include up-to-the-minute guidance, tools, training, and virtual workshops that will help them care for COVID-19 patients and protect themselves.
The WHO Info app, with an intuitive user-interface, will give millions of people real-time mobile access to the latest news and developments, disease outbreak updates, and public health emergency information. The app will provide, from the COVID-19 front, the latest WHO initiatives, partnerships, up-to-date data on cases by country and timelines, and information on the race to find medicines and vaccines for fighting the disease.
