The desire for greater health care coverage in Gabon and the modernization of the country’s health insurance system remains a persistent goal of President El Hadj Omar Bongo Ondimba.
The first phase of deployment for national e-health cards is taking place one year after Gabon national health care body, CNAMGS, announced the selection of Gemalto as its official supplying solution for cards, personalization services and ID verification systems.
Gemalto’s Sealys Laser-Secured card product is partnering with Allynis Issuance operated services to deliver the new e-Healthcare project to the entire Gabonese population. The Sealys Laser-Secured card is made of polycarbonate material which offers a high level of security and durability. The card features secure laser personalization within the body creating a protective layer in which data cannot be altered or accidentally damaged. This particular technology has made the card almost impossible to forge.
The cards will be used in hospitals, pharmacies and health clinics to prove that an individual has access to care while also ensuring that individual’s data is kept private and secure.
