Global health and COVID-19

Together, we can accelerate conversations, education and solutions that focus on how the places where we spend our lives can enhance and improve health.

Places Matter: Prevention and Preparedness, Resilience and Recovery

At the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), we are acutely aware of the gravity of the situation we find ourselves in because of COVID-19. We hope you'll join us as we take action and focus on the leading role buildings, communities and organizations can play to support our health and well-being overall, and our collective ability to prepare for and respond to global health challenges like the one we’re experiencing now. Today, more than ever, places matter to the future of protecting our families, our businesses and the public at large.

Task Force on COVID-19 and Other Respiratory Infections: Prevention and Preparedness, Resilience and Recovery

Chaired by renowned experts, and populated by dozens of thought leaders and authorities from across public health, medicine, design, real estate, government and academia, the Task Force on Coronavirus will both inform new Guidelines for Prevention and Preparedness, Resilience and Recovery and enhancements to the WELL Building Standard itself.
