Tech Goodness: Ideagen enables first-ever digital World Health Assembly

IdeagenAIM-listed risk management software specialist Ideagen has provided the World Health Organisation (WHO) with pro bono use of its document collaboration and governance software, PleaseReview, allowing the WHO to conduct this week its first-ever digital World Health Assembly.

WHOThe Assembly was due to be attended in person by over 4,000 delegates from the 194 Member States, as well as NGOs, philanthropic organisations and other parties. Normally this meeting would have been face-to-face in the Palais de Nation in Geneva, but social distancing measures rendered this impossible.

PleaseReview allowed for secure real-time online collaboration on documents providing an audit trail of responses, changes and agreements. When each word is poured over and debated by thousands of people and the outcome of those debates is so high profile, getting it right is vital for the WHO.

We have seen lot of this type of pro bono activity post-COVID. Given this helped enable the first-ever digital World Health Assembly it is directly linked to the global pandemic response. Doesn’t get much better than that.
