LFPH Faces

Collaborating to
battle COVID-19

Linux Foundation Public Health (LFPH) builds, secures, and sustains open source software to help public health authorities (PHAs) combat COVID-19 and future epidemics.

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

COVID Green™ and COVID Shield™ exposure notification apps are being deployed in Canada, Ireland, and multiple U.S. States. PHAs can leverage their existing IT vendors or we can recommend partners who can customize the software for you.
