#Coronadata

This is a guest contribution from the MyData Global team.

MyData is active in the digital response to COVID19 pandemic.

WHY?

The digital response to the COVID 19 crisis needs to be human-centric, and must consider and balance individual rights, collective good and the potential longlasting effects of technological choices and policies that were intended to be short term. It’s our mission and duty to empower individuals by improving their right to self-determination regarding their personal data. See also the revised MyData Global’s Theory of Change roadmap for how we intend to reach our high-level goals.
