“I’m glad your government is fully utilizing its exceptional digital capabilities in its COVID-19 response and has launched the Aarogya Setu digital app for coronavirus tracking, contact tracing, and to connect people to health services,” expressed the founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to praise the efforts of the Indian PM to make effective use of technology in the severe times of a pandemic.

The foundation has worked aggressively in India to eradicate polio and to provide other health, sanitation, and financial services for the poor with its extensive programs. The Indian PM was also awarded the ‘Goalkeepers Global Goals Award’ in 2019 by Bill Gates on his ‘Swachh Bharat program’.
