World Health Organization To Launch Blockchain Platform On COVID-19 Pandemic
March 30, 2020

The World Health Organization (WHO) has partnered on March 28 with major blockchain and tech companies to launch a distributed ledger technology (DLT)-based platform for sharing data concerning the coronavirus pandemic. 

The platform, MiPasa, is built on top of Hyperledger Fabric and seeks to enable “early detection of COVID-19 carriers and infection hotspots.

MiPasa has been launched in partnership with:

  • Technology company IBM
  • Computer firm Oracle
  • Enterprise blockchain platform Hacera
  • IT corporation Microsoft

The platform purports to facilitate “fully private information sharing between individuals, state authorities and health institutions.” 

The project cross-references siloed location and health data is “siloed” on the platform to glean global insights while ensuring patient privacy, with MiPasa describing the platform as a “verifiable information highway.”

MiPasa is slated to soon host an array of publicly accessible analytics tools too. 

According to the project’s website:

“MiPasa can help monitor and foresee local and global epidemiological trends and detect likely asymptomatic carriers by feeding big data on infection routes and occurrences to powerful AI processors around the world.”

A number of national health institutions are also contributing to the project including the U.S., European, and Chinese Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, the Hong Kong Department of Health, the Government of Canada and China’s National Health Commission.
