G20 summit hears calls for a global digital health passport

Indonesia has just hosted this year’s G20 Summit, and during one of the events this week, the Business 20 (B20), the country’s minister of health announced that participating countries had agreed on a digital health passport.

These would be “digital certificates using WHO standards,” Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin specified, adding that G20 should work to come up with a “global framework” that would allow members to issue digital certificates to be used “during the next pandemic.”

With the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO) apparently “anointed” by this particular group of countries to lead the way in formulating and standardizing the framework for everyone, it will be used to track if a person has been vaccinated or tested.
