The Ministry of Innovation and Technology, with the support of MasterCard Foundation, has launched a project that will help digital innovations for COVID-19 response. According to the Ministry, the newly launched project has received a commitment of USD 887,000 from the MasterCard Foundation to run the COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience Program, which will support the development of COVID-19 response by citizens through data-driven health informatics portal.
The platform will serve as a single and unified portal to integrate and publish information on government interventions on COVID-19 at the national and regional level and facilitate information flow to citizens on over-all governmental COVID-19 responses.
The project will also help set up a rapid response centre to queries raised by citizens using an inbound and outbound call centre with toll-free lines integrated with the information portal.
