  1. Define a complete ecosystem governance framework based on the outcomes of the interoperability recommendations for digital health credentials being developed from Good Health Pass Collaborative and based on the Good Health Pass Principles.


Internationally, there are many initiatives committing expertise and resources to problems associated with digital health certification for COVID-19 test results and vaccination records. Launched on 09 February 2021, the Good Health Pass Collaborative brings organizations from the travel, health and technology sectors together to define what "good looks like" so that the international travel industry can begin operating with secure, reliable digital credentials for test and vaccination records.

The Collaborative's goals are to produce 1) an interoperability blueprint for successful use of verifiable credentials for this use case, 2) a solution to the challenge of binding identity to these credentials and 3) a trust framework for the Good Health Pass ecosystem-of-ecosystems.

This will be achieved by solving seven key interoperability challenges:

  1. Consistent User Experience
  2. Standard Data Models and Elements
  3. Credential Formats, Signatures, and Exchange Protocols
  4. Security, Privacy, and Data Protection
  5. Trust Registries
  6. Rules Engines
  7. Identity Binding
