5 years of OpenWHO.org: Learning for the world during epidemics and the pandemic
You are cordially invited to a webinar celebrating the 5th anniversary of WHO’s open learning platform for health emergencies, OpenWHO.org.

WHO launched OpenWHO in June 2017 to facilitate the transfer of public health knowledge for emergencies on a massive scale in anticipation of the next pandemic. Grounded in the principles of open access and equity, courses are free, self-paced, accessible in low-bandwidth and offline formats, and available in national and local languages.

After serving responders in outbreaks from Ebola to plague, OpenWHO dramatically scaled up course production for the COVID-19 pandemic, making life-saving information from WHO experts available online at a time when lockdowns and social distancing limited our ability to physically come together to learn.

This event is open to anyone interested. Please share the registration link with your networks.

The webinar will be divided into 2 parts:

1. Behind the scenes with OpenWHO (11:30 – 12:30 CEST). This session will explore OpenWHO’s journey from June 2017 to today with WHO leaders who shaped the open learning platform and paved the way for its pandemic response.

2. Disseminating learning for vulnerable contexts (12:30 – 13:30 CEST). This session will feature partners’ experiences disseminating public health emergency learning and the impact it has made on vulnerable contexts.
