This poster presents some preliminary findings of the OpenWHO.org platform’s global use trends, in terms of the geographical distribution and occupational characteristics of its users. Assessment of user profiles is essential to measure the platform’s impact, most notably related to the attainment of its core mission: the provision of life-saving knowledge worldwide. A quantitative study was conducted on the global metrics of OpenWHO’s user statistics. Common user categories encompassed a wide range of professional bodies and occupations, both within public health and beyond, ranging from students and volunteers, to WHO staff, to members of international organizations and NGOs. Global tendencies in platform use confirm that that the mission of OpenWHO, to provide timely, up-to-date and easy-to-understand lifesaving knowledge to healthcare workers based in-country and responding to outbreaks at the front line, is being met.
