LFPH Faces

Collaborating to
improve digital
health equity

Linux Foundation Public Health (LFPH) builds, secures, and sustains open source software to improve global health equity and innovation.

Join our Implementer’s Forum

PHAs and their technology partners are encouraged to join our Implementer’s Forum to share advice and document best practices. This is available at no cost whether or not you’re using an LFPH-hosted project.

Use our open source projects

Linux Foundation Public Health is committed to advancing the use of open source solutions in global health. Our COVID Green™ and COVID Shield™ exposure notification apps are being deployed in Canada, Ireland, and multiple U.S. States. Cardea provides a vaccination credential solution being used around the world. PHAs and healthcare organizations can leverage their existing IT vendors or we can recommend partners who can customize the software for you.
