Professor Salma Abbasi will set the stage for a series of panel discussions, and provide recommendations and a way forward at the IEEE “Technology, Equality and Equity for Global Vaccination Certificates and Passports” webinar.
The goal of this webinar is to create a platform for dialogue and knowledge exchange. The focus is to develop a greater understanding of current digital technologies, data management systems, standards, regulations, guidelines and processes that operate around the world issuing, managing and distributing ‘COVID-19 Vaccination Certificates and Passports’. The discussions will highlight the current cross border agreements, bilateral treaties and systems that provide the infrastructure for equitable, safe and secure exchange of vaccination status. The current inequities are having a significant impact on the mobility of people and goods) resulting in economic hardships around the world, particularly for marginalized communities.
