This article highlights the urgent need to communicate COVID-19 resources in multiple languages.
OpenWHO, an open access learning platform, usually publishes learning resources initially in English, as this is the most-widely used and understood language across the globe; however, recent trends during the COVID-19 pandemic stress the importance of multilingual learning platforms. Notably during this pandemic is that Spanish versions of COVID-19 resources have been the most sought after resources. OpenWHO has expedited its learning development materials in multiple languages to increase access and use during this pandemic. Life-saving information must be packaged and delivered in languages spoken by target audiences, which is why it is important for localized materials to follow OpenWHO’s initiative to rely on crowdsourcing to publish resources in needed languages.
