COVID-19 Digital Classroom: Course Series

COVID-19 Digital Classroom: Course Series

Track Overview

The COVID-19 course series is part of the COVID-19 Digital Classroom initiative. These courses are primarily designed for community-based health workers who practice in low- and middle-income countries. It covers a range of topics on COVID-19, including basic information on the virus and how to mitigate its public health effects. The course is designed to synthesize the most important, high-level information on COVID-19 from a variety of well-respected resources in a practical way. Many of the resources are cited for your reference and include documents and guidelines from the World Health Organization, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the UN, and many other reliable sources. While community-based health workers are the primary audience for this course series, the topics covered are relevant for everyone involved in responding to this pandemic worldwide.

It is important to note that while these courses provide a generalized overview of COVID-19 and information on how to contain the spread of the disease, they cannot account for everything, especially as we are still learning day-to-day about the virus and its impact on our health and society. Therefore, please use this course as a guide, and continue to familiarize yourself with your context, including your country’s public health guidelines, in order to best customize the content we cover here for you and your community’s specific needs.

Join the Facebook Group to engage with the community of health workers and global health leaders using the COVID-19 Digital Classroom tools.
