GenKey showcasing biometric solutions for identity programs at AIDF Summit


GenKey is participating this week at the AIDF Global Summit 2018 in Washington D.C.

Sales executives from GenKey have been sharing the latest information about its biometric solutions for small and large-scale identity programs, such as healthcare, social protection, elections, as well as the enrolment and delivery of aid for displaced persons. Seth Akumani, GenKey’s Director of Business Development will share insights on how biometric identification and verification improves healthcare and aid delivery today at 3:30 PM ET.

AIDF is the leading global platform serving the humanitarian aid and development sectors. This high-level exclusive summit focuses on enabling quicker and better response during crisis and catastrophes in a more effective, sustainable and cost-efficient way. More than 300 senior representatives and advisors from governments, UN agencies, international and regional NGOs, CBOs, investors and donors, research institutes and the private sector are expected to attend this year’s summit.

“With nearly 69 million forcibly displaced people worldwide and almost 29,000 forced to flee their homes every day because of conflict, the clarion call is clear for everyone,” explains Michiel Loeff, CEO of GenKey. “Guided by our mission of providing an identity for all, GenKey is excited to offer its technologies and to work with partners for the registration and verification of refugees or individuals displaced through disasters, thus helping to ensure effective aid distribution and management.”

Summit sessions this year include Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience, Innovations and ICT, Humanitarian Logistics, Cash-based Programs and Camp Management, Procurement and NGO Perspective. There will also be interactive sessions on Partnerships and Collaborations for Emergency Sourcing, Long-Term Sustainability and more.

Last month GenKey released version 3.5 of its ABIS system which has been designed for small and large-scale biometric identification and deduplication.
