Modi flags off CoWIN Global Conclave: ‘One Earth, One Health’

Hailing the principle of ‘one earth, one health’ to overcome the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday flagged off the CoWIN Global Conclave to make available the vaccine registration platform to all nations that seek it.

PM Modi expressed the hope that guided by the approach of ‘One Earth, One Health’, humanity will certainly overcome this pandemic.

He said that India considers the whole world as one family, adding that the country has been committed to sharing all its experiences and resources to deal with the pandemic.

“This pandemic has made many people realise the fundamental truth of this philosophy,” PM Modi said, “that’s why, our technology platform for Covid vaccination – the platform we call CoWIN – is being prepared to be made open source”.

PM Modi further stressed that technology is integral in the battle against the Covid-19 crisis.

His virtual address comes at a time India has administered 350 million doses of vaccines against Covid-19. “India is excited to join hands with the world to win over Covid-19 together with CoWIN,” the National Health Authority said in a statement.

So far, 50 countries, including Mexico, Canada, Uganda and Nigeria, have expressed interest in adopting CoWIN to run their inoculation drives.
