We achieve this mission through several efforts: connecting and educating app developers about navigating the public health environment, assisting public health agencies in understanding how to deploy this technology safely and effectively, and supporting exposure notification apps with open source software.
Many different groups have sprung up to either enable or build out exposure notification applications since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
These organizations span the globe and many of them have overlapping missions and work. On top of that, they are largely focused on their own product and are not thinking about the broader ecosystem, including how interoperability between these systems might work.
The TCN Coalition serves as a gathering place to increase visibility across the ecosystem, allowing for better communication, more effective use of resources, and faster delivery of effective exposure notification solutions as a result.
