Welcome to OpenWHO

OpenWHO is WHO’s new interactive, web-based, knowledge-transfer platform offering online courses to improve the response to health emergencies. OpenWHO enables the Organization and its key partners to transfer life-saving knowledge to large numbers of frontline responders.

Essential knowledge for outbreak response

OpenWHO is the first WHO platform to host unlimited users during health emergencies. It provides you with a fast and free way to obtain the latest scientific and operation know-how. With a dynamic interface, accessible through your computer and mobile device, OpenWHO offers off-line downloads, peer discussion boards and live briefings from ongoing health emergencies.
OpenWHO. Open to all anytime, from anywhere.


Online learning resources for Ebola virus disease

The need for knowledge transfer in infectious disease outbreaks was recognized during the 2014–2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Similarly, in all major epidemics of past years, including yellow fever and Zika, there has been an increased need for a system that quickly transforms scientific knowledge into action on the ground. OpenWHO.org was born from that need.


The French version of the " Accelerating progress towards health-related SDGs - Short track" course now available

This course aims to provide an overview of key concepts, strategies and opportunities for effectively working with WHO Member states and non-state actors to achieve health-related SDG targets and Universal Health Coverage (UHC). It is a condensed version of the more extensive “Accelerating progress towards health-related SDGs”, which is available through iLearn. One of the main objectives of this course is to create a deeper understanding of why UHC and health security play essential roles in the SDG agenda and how WHO’s six lines of action can help accelerate its fulfilment until 2030.

This short course provides information on screening and triage, infection prevention and control, laboratory diagnostics, organization of the Ebola Treatment Centre (ETC), clinical care of patients in the ETC, and investigational therapeutic agents.
