Open Source Digital Tools to tackle COVID-19

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Apr 09, 2020 | UNDP Singapore Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development

Technology and innovation can play an important role in tackling COVID-19 accelerating how governments and societies respond to the pandemic. Recognising this, the UNDP Global Centre is compiling open source tools to accelerate the digital response to COVID-19. Although not a panacea, technology and innovation have the potential to support governments in their efforts on-the-ground.



The tools are split into three areas:


  • Disease monitoring: identifying the spread of COVID-19 in a society
  • Prevention and containment: preventing the spread of the disease, and supporting efforts to minimise further spread
  • Diagnosis: helping citizens and governments to confirm whether individuals are infected or not.
