WHO has published guidance and advice to help governments, health professionals and the general public respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ranging across multiple areas and numerous countries, the common thread through the technical guidance is the need for governments to make informed decisions and to clearly communicate with their citizens.
OpenWHO, WHO’s interactive, web-based platform, also offers online courses to people preparing to work in epidemics, pandemics and health emergencies, or who already doing so. It has courses on COVID-19 in many of the world’s most commonly spoken languages.
WHO strengthens public health laboratory systems throughout the health emergencies preparedness, readiness response and recovery cycle.
