We've repeatedly called for an impact assessement to be done prior to deployment of any digital solution and for it to inform decisions.

We're glad to see the @WHO putting the emphasis on the obligation of gov'ts to do so in their guidance for Covid-19 vaccination certificates.

@WHO highlights in guidance that processing of data for deployment of Covid-19 vaccination certificates should:
✅be fair & non-discriminatory
✅respect the legitimate interests of individuals & groups concerned
✅have a lawful basis
✅should comply with human rights standards
