Health Ministry partners with Google for COVID-19 response
ISLAMABAD: Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination has entered into a partnership with global technology giant Google to raise awareness on prevention of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.
Free space has been provided by Google for public education through all existing channels, including search, display and Youtube. Through this assistance, the ministry of health will be able to deliver critical information to Pakistanis on how to prevent and cope with the spread of COVID-19.
The free space or ad credits provided are worth USD five million and are part of Google’s Ad Grants Programme and are anticipated to run from April until the end of the year.
To support Pakistan both in the ongoing short-term response to the virus, and in the long-term, Google is concentrating on three priorities that they believe are critical to a sustainable recovery included promoting accurate and reliable information, supporting education and learning and contributing to business continuity and economic recovery. - APP
