Application Overview

In order to support COVID-19 response, this application has been designed to help identify facilities that need their capacities increased, as well as note potential stock imbalances. The application promotes the completion of a facility readiness assessment for COVID-19, including the identification of gaps and tracking their status over time as they are addressed. 

Using a standardized protocol such as the protocol provided here, facility readiness data and critical stock usage data can be systematically collected, formatted into actionable reports and shared rapidly with decision making organizations and individuals globally to plan for and predict facility readiness and critical stock items needed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Interim guidance on essential resource planning can be accessed directly on the WHO website.

Please see this application concept note to learn more about this application's design.
