Empowering Health Systems Globally through Collaboration with Google
Google has partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) to hasten the digital transformation of health systems worldwide. The collaboration aims to create approaches that are effective, interoperable, and impactful. Among the platforms and solutions that early adopters across Sub-Saharan Africa, India, and Southeast Asia are using are the components of the Open Health Stack(OHS). These OHS components include early implementations of the WHO SMART Guidelines content, which is an innovative approach for making evidence-based guidelines more accessible to frontline health workers through digital tools. This approach empowers local entrepreneurs to support public health and create systems that are adaptable, manageable, and sustainable.
Connecting People to Authoritative Information from WHO
In addition to its collaboration with WHO, Google.org has donated more than $320 million in donated Google Search advertising via Ad Grants to help WHO connect as many people as possible with authoritative information. This donation has been Google’s largest Ad Grants donation to a single organization.
WHO has allocated some of these Ad Grants to public health topics beyond COVID-19, such as Mpox, mental health, flu, Ebola, and natural disasters. WHO has served over 28 million public service announcements in six languages, resulting in over 2.7 million visits to their website.

For 2023, Google.org is providing another $50M in Ad Grants to support WHO and assist in continuing its impactful work in public health. This grant will aid WHO in its mission to help health systems worldwide use technology to adapt and provide quality health services.
