As an Electronic Vaccination Intelligence Network, Cowin has collected data from the entire vaccination drive. It provides cloud-based IT solutions from vaccination drive preparation to implementation. This platform not only tracks vaccinations, but also records the number of vaccines perishable.
“Countries that showed interest in the CoWin platform at the Co-Win Global Conclave include Canada, Mexico, Nigeria, Panama and Uganda. The Government of India has been able to handle the entire campaign properly with the help of this platform and this platform has been able to handle lakhs of people together. In the conclave, India shared its vaccination drive experience with delegates from other countries and explained the benefits of CO-WIN to them.”
