Arriving at a framework for harmonization, standardization & differentiation

Parts 1 & 2 of our trilogy on Vaccination Certificates & Identity Management have set the pace for discussions on policy deliberations and innovative solutions in the development of COVID verifiable credentials. Both events continue to be praised as being our best series yet and… there’s still more to come!

Join your host, Dr. Joseph Atick, for a series finale, tour de force coverage on CV19 credentials where he shifts gears with a league of domain experts in a live collaboration searching for a framework for harmonizing national, regional and international efforts in this domain.

Here's what to expect from 3 actionable segments:

Disclaimer: All initiatives featured in our trilogy were selected through a merit-based review of proposals in response to a global Call for Participation. No financial or other consideration was received from any of the chosen participants. Furthermore, selection to participate should not be interpreted as an endorsement by ID4Africa. ID4Africa remains vendor, and technology-neutral, endorsing only equal opportunity for all. 


The subject of vaccine certificates is one that is currently occupying significant attention of governments worldwide and it requires deep deliberations before adopting measures capable of responding to the challenge COVID is presenting for reopening economies and borders worldwide.

This controversial credential is likely to occupy a great deal of public mindshare. It may also become a requirement for a broad range of educational, occupational and travel purposes.

With governments under pressure to launch such schemes, even in the absence of the full scientific evidence needed to inform their policies, ID4Africa forges ahead to examine the pros and cons, assumptions, the range of applications, and the corresponding policy options that governments could choose from as they explore the feasibility of such public health credentials.


Our most popular episode to-date, Part 1 featured leading international organizations and think tanks weighing in on policy recommendations and implementation plans for CVCs. 

Part 2 assembled a world class lineup of international experts implementing national and private sector solutions, setting the stage for the final 10 solutions to be unveiled May 6. 



In addition to our vibrant chat and Q&A channels, come seize the opportunity to participate in our live polls where you can communicate your stance on related issues before an audience of decision-makers and stakeholders from over 140 countries worldwide!

Dr. Joseph Atick

Executive Chairman

Dr. Joseph J. Atick is a recognized world renowned advocate and expert on identity matters. Having been one of the founders of the identity industry nearly 30 years ago, he led several companies in that domain and developed some of the foundational algorithms underlying secure digital identity today, including the first commercially viable face recognition algorithm

In that mission he partnered with the World Bank and other UN agencies, and was heavily involved in the development and field testing of the methodology and analytic tools that would guide the subsequent activities in that space, and would lead to the launch of the ID4D initiative at the World Bank.
