Dubai: In a yet another testament of the UAE’s superior technical prowess and the successful digital transformation goals, the Al Hosn App was recently honored as the “App Of The Year 2021” in the COVID-19 Response Category at the Global Excellence Award (GEA).
US-based GEA is one of the most coveted awards that has uniquely established itself at the global level.
The honor is the result of the teamwork between the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), Alhosn National Health System and the UAE health sector. Winning a GEA reiterates the advanced level of the UAE’s health system in the digital transformation, as well as the efficiency of the relentless efforts made to curb the spread of the pandemic.
AL HOSN APP
UAE’s official App for official COVID-19 testing, vaccination certificates and exemptions, the Al Hosn App is one of the modern national digital systems the Government launched since the outbreak of the pandemic.
The bilingual App which supports Arabic, English and Hindi has high confidence, credibility and reliability inside and outside the UAE. The COVID-19 status on the App is also used to issue permits for numerous events such as Expo 2020 Dubai and Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Al Hosn App’s Travel Pass, a newly added feature, now recognized as equivalent to EU DCC certificates.
Regionally, the App helps parents to view level of vaccination (percent of people vaccination) at their children’s school with highest levels of transparency and community involvement.
The App gives significant importance to user data where information of users is kept confidential by storing personal information in an encrypted manner.
