Greetings to All,

 

New offering from the World Health Organization (WHO):

Free online courses for frontline emergency responders

 

The WHO has started a free online course platform aimed at responders to disease outbreaks and health emergencies.

 

OpenWHO is the new interactive, web-based, knowledge-transfer platform from WHO, offering online courses to improve responses to health emergencies.

 

OpenWHO enables the Organization and its partners to quickly transfer life-saving knowledge to large numbers of frontline responders to environmental health emergencies. These are video courses on epidemics, pandemics and health emergencies. The courses are free of charge and accessible to anyone wishing to register.

 

The courses can be accessed on the projects web site OpenWHO.org. There is a video on the front page of the OpenWHO.org site describing the aims of the project and a list of courses that are available at present.

 

OpenWHO’s aim is to transform complex scientific knowledge into easy-to-understand introductory video lessons, using as small a bandwidth as possible so that interested parties in any country can access them.

 

Offline versions of the courses are available for IOS and Android devices.

 

These versions allow sharing of the course materials with persons who do not have Internet access.
