Organized by Suno India and Internet Freedom Foundation
In this session, the speakers will be discussing the issue of contact tracing, health and disease surveillance and how it is different from social forms of surveillance carried out by the police and intelligence agencies.
The response to coronavirus contact tracing has been from the police department instead of health departments bringing in concerns of misuse of information. While a healthcare response is need of the hour, we are witnessing all other forms of reactions but by health practitioners.
