Marrakech – The World Health Organization (WHO) is granting free access to “OpenWHO,” a multilingual learning platform that will allow individuals to learn about pressing health issues such as the coronavirus, or COVID-19.
WHO announced free access to the platform on its official website and social media.

Amid lockdowns and curfews in countries around the world, OpenWHO allows individuals to learn about the epidemic from home during quarantine.
WHO works to communicate credible information and measures during the coronavirus pandemic, collaborating with countries around the world to combat fake news.
One measure taken in pursuit of this goal is a WHO WhatsApp service providing information and advice about the COVID-19 pandemic. Health experts offer credible information to users, serving to protect mental health amid the coronavirus crisis.
