Ideagen (AIM:IDEA FOLLOW) has partnered with the World Health Organisation in support of its collaboration and policy making work during the coronavirus pandemic.

The group’s document collaboration and governance software product, PleaseReview, enabled the WHO to conduct its first-ever digital World Health Assembly this week.

PleaseReview allows for real-time collaboration on documents, offers a secure means of capturing comments and provides a full audit trail of responses, changes and agreements. 

“We are delighted to support the WHO in their life saving work, especially at such a crucial period,” said Ben Dorks, CEO of information management software supplier, Ideagen.

The group said PleaseReview has provided the WHO with a solution to their problems and is of  ‘paramount importance’ to the WHO given the global significance of its debates.

Shares in Ideagen were trading 5.48% higher at 183p on Friday afternoon.


The 73rd World Health Assembly took place earlier this week with delegates adopting a landmark resolution to bring the world together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The software allowed WHO to invite member states to conduct a first review of policy documents that would normally be conducted face to face, in a secure, online environment. 

The assembly was its first-ever to be held virtually and only had two items up for discussion with the main one being the pandemic and the global response to it, the group detailed.

“The scale of the challenge facing them is enormous and we are extremely proud that we can offer them the use of PleaseReview, a product that will make that challenge a little easier to handle,” added Dorks.
