Covid Watch is working with a wide range of organizations–including public health authorities, universities and governments to bring our privacy-preserving exposure notification solution to anyone in the world. This is uncharted territory, and every day we and our partners discover new ways to aid in the fight against COVID-19. To harness the full potential of these collaborations, we launched the Covid Watch Forum – a space for our partners and expert advisors to collaborate, share best practices and learn from each other.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, those who are working on solutions need ways to share knowledge in real time. The lessons learned in one region, shared clearly and quickly, could make a life-or-death difference elsewhere. By pooling our insights and experience, the Covid Watch Forum allows our members to move forward with confidence, knowing that their actions are informed by cutting-edge data and technology. Forum members have access to world-class expertise to ensure that every step we take together is grounded firmly in the highest standard of evidence.
The Covid Watch Forum meets regularly to discuss the latest developments and to collaborate on best practices. The Forum facilitates networking between organizations from around the world who otherwise might not work together, but who are united by their urgent need to scale up their public health efforts by using exposure notification technology to reopen schools and businesses safely.
The ultimate vision of Covid Watch is a global network of people watching out for each other and their communities. To help make this happen, the Forum connects our pilot partners with each other and experts in public health, privacy, cryptography, and other key fields. We will periodically publish and share our progress publicly so that we can accelerate innovation.
The Covid Watch Forum is open to Covid Watch partners and advisory council members. Members include universities, hospitals, public health departments, domain experts and state and federal governments. If you are interested in joining the Forum, the first step is to get in touch with Covid Watch to learn more about becoming a partner.
