COVID-19 Free Template Applications 

Dimagi is rapidly deploying free, pre-built COVID-19 web-based template applications. The list of current template applications is available here.

These templates can be used as fully-functioning applications within a desktop or mobile browser and as standalone, offline-capable Android applications to carry out disease surveillance and educational activities based on leading clinical protocols from the World Health Organization, CDC, and others. All free COVID-19 Template Apps are housed in this library (http://www.commcarehq.org/covid19) and can be imported into your CommCare project space.

Please note: you'll need a [free] CommCare account and will need to be logged in before accessing any COVID-19 template app. No account? Create one here.
