Designed primarily for health care workers, frontline responders, and decision-makers, the app is also a source of information for those affected by disease outbreaks and health emergencies, or for those with general interest in WHO's work in health emergencies.
It features 4 channels:
- The Outbreak Channel addresses the management of infectious diseases and provides life-saving, scientific information.
- The Ready for Response channel helps prepare personnel who are training for deployment to work in disease outbreaks and health emergencies.
- The Get Social channel focuses on social sciences based interventions and helps to communicate with affected communities.
- The GOARN channel is dedicated to preparing the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network for international alert and response operations.
All courses are in English, and many are available in French and Arabic. Other language versions are in the pipeline.
