Can Blockchain Deliver: Nigerian Vaccination System

Presented by BlockTEST, Afri-PERA
Partnered with SGInnovate

Blockchain technology has impressive potential for creating more open, transparent, and verifiable systems that allow individuals to share information with each other through processes that were previously impossible. 

BlockTEST and Afri-PERA will be sharing their insights on a collaborative blockchain-based solution that grants infants in Nigeria a transferrable vaccination history and enables NGOs to transparently fund vaccination initiatives. Join us at this event as the speakers discuss why this technology can be so useful for the non-profit sector and how it is poised to have an impact in Nigeria and many other developing countries.
