COVID-19 Related Education

WHO COVID-19 Mass Gatherings Risk Assessment TrainingThe training describes the risk assessment exercise that WHO has developed to aid health authorities and event organizers in their  planning for upcoming mass gatherings amid the current COVID-19  pandemic. WHO has developed a set of COVID-19 risk assessments tools  dedicated to generic mass gatherings as well as to sports specific and  religious specific mass gatherings. It should be noted, however, that  general considerations and advice applicable to the organization of mass  gatherings, and addressing risks of any origin, should also be taken  into account when planning an event. These risk assessments provide a  user-friendly way for health authorities and organizers to understand  the level of risk an upcoming mass gathering may hold in further  spreading COVID-19, both within a country and globally. All of the tools  mentioned can be found on the WHO website. The course has been  developed in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health  Security, WHO Collaborating Centre on Global Health Security.
