We are elated to announce that eGov Foundation’s DIVOC has won “Gold” in the Technology category at the BW Business World Future of Design Awards 2023. Nita Tyagi, Director – Partnerships and Growth, eGov Foundation, received the award on behalf of the organization and the entire Open Source DIVOC community.
Design has evolved to become an integral part of products across industries, and DIVOC has successfully applied design thinking to solve problems in public health programs and leading the way in utilizing innovative design to orchestrate large-scale vaccination and public health programs.
The COVID-19 pandemic halted the world in 2020 and vaccination was crucial in containing it. Building trust in vaccination records was necessary for unlocking global barriers. The eGovernments Foundation developed DIVOC, an open-source platform to issue tamper-proof COVID-19 vaccination & test result certificates. The digitally signed QR code-based certificates were designed for verifications in low-to-no internet environments.
DIVOC vaccination certificate module, which went live in India in January 2021, has been adopted by countries across the globe including Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Jamaica, and Indonesia
DIVOC is also a DPGA listed public good and Digital Square approved (PATH) approved Global Goods Software.
We are happy to receive this recognition for our work and we are committed to make a positive impact on society. This recognition is a testament to the power of design in solving complex societal problems and creating sustainable products and experiences for #publicgood. On behalf of our partners and the entire DIVOC community we thank BW Business World for recognising our efforts, and congratulations to all the winners and participants at the Future of Design Awards 2023.
