We are delighted to share with you first access to the WHO Academy’s new COVID-19 mobile learning app that is targeted specifically to health workers!
While WHO has not yet made a formal announcement, we wanted you to be able to download it now and share with your colleagues, co-students and with young health workers globally.
It is available in the Apple App Store (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/who-academy/id1506019873?ls=1)
and the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.who.WHOA).
The app provides mobile access to the WHO COVID-19 knowledge resources, 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.
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
The app was created in direct response to an online survey of health workers conducted by the WHO Academy in March and April, to which they received more than 20 000 responses.
