World Health Organisation COVID-19 Training

We are pleased to announce three new courses which have recently become available on OpenWHO:

1. Standard precautions: Waste management
In this course, you will learn about the different categories of waste and the process for waste management. Health care waste includes all waste generated by health, research and laboratory facilities in the course of providing health care services. Health care waste in a facility should be managed from the point of generation to final disposal and removal.

2. Tobacco product regulation: Basic handbook
Although tobacco use is a major public health problem, tobacco products are one of the few openly available consumer products that are virtually unregulated in many countries for contents, emissions and design features. In this three-part series, you will first review the basics of tobacco product regulation and international guidance (Sections 1-2), steps to assessing regulatory needs and capacity and regulatory considerations (Sections 3-4), and finally, implementation and potential challenges, novel, new and modified tobacco or related products, and testing and disclosure (Sections 5-7).

3. Tobacco product regulation: Building laboratory testing capacity
In recent years, health authorities have become increasingly interested in the potential of tobacco product regulation to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with tobacco use. This course provides practical, stepwise approaches to implementing tobacco testing to improve tobacco product regulation. Such guidance is relevant to a wide range of countries in various settings, even those with inadequate resources to establish a testing facility.

OpenWHO now has a total of 72 resources for COVID-19 spread across 25 languages, the newest being Amharic, Hausa, Odia and Swahili. Since last Thursday the 7th, 9 new language versions have been added:
