An information portal designed to equip local governments with updates, innovations, and best practices for our battle against COVID-19.
LGUs play a critical role in our fight against COVID-19. To enable them to respond better and faster to the needs of their localities, they should be given access to updated, accurate, and easy-to-digest information.
The portal was primarily conceptualized when The Asia Foundation got an insight that many local government units (LGUs) are having difficulties catching up with the stream of announcements and issuances from the national government.
With this, we were tapped by The Asia Foundation for the user experience redesign of LGU vs COVID PH, an information portal that aims to equip local government officials and staff with updates on COVID-19.
The site also contains COVID-19 related innovations and best practices that local governments can replicate.
As of April 22, 4,000 original users have already accessed the portal. The Department of the Interior and Local Government has also endorsed and promoted the site to LGUs.
