According to the NHA (National Health Authority) website, “the Conclave aims to share India’s experience with regards to Universal Vaccination to battle Covid-19 using the Co-WIN platform.”

The government has opted to provide the open-source platform in order to assist other countries in better organising their vaccination drives.

Approximately 50 countries are likely to inquire about the platform. Canada, Dominican Republic, UAE, Panama, Peru, Mexico, Azerbaijan, Uganda, Vietnam, Ukraine, Nigeria, Iraq, and other countries have expressed interest in the platform.

The application was launched in January, when India began one of the world’s largest immunisation campaigns. The app has been dubbed the “backbone technology” of the country’s immunisation campaign. While many have questioned the digital platform’s heavy dependence, it has allowed the country’s digitally educated people to access government services.

Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said on Tuesday that India’s CoWin app, a “scalable, inclusive, and open technological” platform, may be customised and scaled up for health initiatives around the world.

Shringla said India is working on sharing the platform with partner countries during a UNSC open debate on “Maintenance of International Peace and Security: Cyber Security.”

CoWIN is a vaccination app created by the Indian government. It is used for the registration and appointments for the coronavirus vaccine.

“India has established CoWIN – a scalable, inclusive, and open technical platform as part of their COVID vaccination programme, one of the largest such drives in the world,” Shringla stated via video conference.

“The CoWIN platform can be tailored and scaled up for global health interventions. We are working to make this platform available to our partner countries,” he added.
