HealthBuddy+ app is an online interactive digital tool that provides access to up-to-date and evidence-based information on COVID-19 including vaccination. HealthBuddy+ is now available in Albanian and Serbian language thanks to the support of WHO Office in Pristina.

 The application is developed by WHO Regional office for Europe (WHO/Europe) and UNICEF Regional office for Europe and Central Asia (UNICEF ECARO) and is designed to support access to reliable information on COVID-19. The same application is available for all countries of the Europe and Central Asia region in their local languages.

HealthBuddy+ is available on the web and as a mobile application (on Apple and Google Play app stores) and has several features. On the web version, the user can interact with the chatbot to get the answers on COVID-19.

Through the HealthBuddy+ mobile application, the users can: ask questions on COVID-19 on the chatbot and get instant verified answers; report rumors circulating in the community; and share opinions and experiences on COVID-19 response using the polls function. All the information available in HealthBuddy+ from the users is checked by team of experts from WHO and all the new information and evidence are regularly added to the bot based on the questions and inputs.
