President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, today chaired a meeting devoted to discuss the work of IMPACT electronic platform, which was launched by the Central Inspection on March 5, 2020.

IMPACT is the first electronic platform owned by the state and shared between ministries and municipalities for evaluation, coordination and follow-up.

The President listened to a briefing presentation, made by Head of the Central Inspection, Judge George Attiyeh, and Technical Support Team member Dr. Carole Sharabati, on the overall applications and programs of the IMPACT platform, which recently supported the government during the lockdown period, in terms of allowing citizens to obtain transport permits. IMPACT also supported the Health Ministry in adopting the platform as a basic base through which to register to receive Corona vaccines, following-up on citizen health status and obtaining a form which indicates the reception of the COVID vaccine, with the related data.

The meeting also addressed the website which is used to view all numbers and charts related to travel permits and registration processes for receiving the vaccine from the platform, along with the related number of individuals who received the vaccine and their distribution among regions. The discussion also dealt with the rural and local development form through which data on regions are collected in cooperation with Municipalities so that this data can be used in any future developmental plan, in addition to the form of the poorest families whose data was collected through cooperation with municipalities, mayor and Social Affairs Ministry, in the early stages of Corona spread.

Moreover, the forms of damage to government buildings, institutions and public administrations whose data were collected after the Beirut Port explosion were also deliberated in cooperation and coordination with the Public Works and Displaced Ministries.

It is noteworthy that all this data, graphs and figures are published on the website which is accessible by citizens, where the Central Inspection aims to reinforce the principle and the right to access information to benefit from in any future plan.

The meeting was attended by former Minister, Salim Jreisatti, and Presidency Director General, Dr. Antoine Choucair.
