PROTECTING AND ADVANCING FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
AND PRIVACY IN THE ICT SECTOR

In the new report “Technologies Used in the Fight Against the Pandemic: Personal Data in Latin America,” Laura Hernández from Derechos Digitales, with support from GNI, looks at the development of technologies to fight the pandemic under different legal frameworks in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and El Salvador. She analyzes the impacts of governments’ responses on users’ privacy rights and makes recommendations to ensure that the design, development, and implementation of these technologies complies with human rights standards. The report is available in English and Spanish.
