The announcement was made by WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebryesus.
‘This is the first building block of the WHO Global Digital Health Certification Network that will develop a wide range of digital products to deliver better #HealthForAll,’ the organisation tweeted.
‘Building on the success of the EU system, the WHO is today proud to announce the global digital health certification network’.
‘In June 2023, WHO will take up the European Union (EU) system of digital COVID-19 certification to establish a global system that will help facilitate global mobility and protect citizens across the world from on-going and future health threats, including pandemics. This is the first building block of the WHO Global Digital Health Certification Network (GDHCN) that will develop a wide range of digital products to deliver better health for all,’ the organisation said in a press statement.
WHO states this is ‘the first building block’ of the global WHO system, which becomes operational this month, and ‘aims to be progressively developed in the coming months.’
Responding to the announcement, comments were overwhelming negative, with most people saying they will not comply, and questioning WHO’s authority to implement the digital system. Many feared the digital certificate would restrict international travel, and saw it as an attack on fundamental human rights and freedoms based on ‘vaccination’ status.

Here comes the WHO and European Commission with a massive power grab to implement a worldwide digital vaccine passport system.
This is not about "health security" or facilitating "global mobility". The plan is to lock down the non-compliant and end our freedom of mobility. pic.twitter.com/gvIPnF5Yt9
