The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted the world's most vulnerable communities, where barriers to accessing health care and health information are high. In addition, misinformation and disinformation are proliferating worldwide, leaving many people confused about which sources to trust and what medical advice to follow.

Our free COVID-19 Toolkit provides evidence-based information related to understanding and preventing COVID-19. The content is mainly visual to address language & literacy barriers, is mobile-friendly for use in low-bandwidth settings, and includes recommendations that consider varying environmental contexts. The content is adaptable and can be co-branded with locally trusted institutions to facilitate increased acceptance at the community level.

Since 2020, the resources in this toolkit have been translated into over 17 languages and viewed more than 6 million times.
