Policy Paper: Using Data to Fight COVID-19 – And Build Back Better

The policy paper looks at how digital technologies and data have been applied to fight the Coronavirus. The paper summarizes main debates and questions around these initiatives to reflect on their usefulness, implications, limitations, risks and their requirements. Furthermore, it explores how the learnings of the first wave of the pandemic could provide an opportunity to use data more efficiently in the future to build back better. It builds on the paper “Sharing is Caring: Four Key Requirements for Sustainable Private Data Sharing and Use for Public Good”, that Data Pop Alliance and the Vodafone Institute published jointly in 2019.
