Earlier today, one of Uganda's largest refugee camps reported their first COVID-19 cases. Unfortunately, internet access and accurate, scalable information about COVID-19 is extremely limited in many refugee camps.
What it does
Using Arist, learners with limited internet access can now immediately access an up-to-date COVID-19 course.
