WHO has launched a new platform for health sector partners in Poland, helping to strengthen coordination efforts among actors responding to the needs of refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine.

The dashboard provides up-to-date information, including details about new partners, on an interactive map that is divided into national and subnational levels.

Partners who work in a certain region or city in Poland can view other counterparts working in the same location. This can increase understanding of ongoing activities and support effective planning and wider collaboration.

Commenting on the launch of the platform, Dr Paloma Cuchi, WHO Representative in Poland, said: “With millions of people on the move, it’s crucial that partners understand what activities are taking place. This platform aids the ongoing response by ensuring stronger coordination, meaning that we can make the most of existing resources.”

How to register

To register, partners should access the platform and input information about their location and key ongoing activities in support of Ukrainian refugees in Poland. Once the registration is completed, a unique record is created and added to the Health Sector – Ukrainian Refugee Response in Poland dashboard under the partner's name. The enhanced interface, features and capabilities of the dashboard allow for easy integration with other similar datasets managed by WHO.

Health partners who wish to gain access to registration should write to eurowhopol@who.int.

The dashboard instantly shows the details about newly added partners on the interactive map divided into national and subnational levels. Please visit the dashboard to view basic information.
