It is important to emphasize that Aruba, being such a small island, was a role model for larger countries that saw the value and implemented the same system after confirming the efficiency of this application.

The Minister of Tourism and Healthcare is grateful to all stakeholders who were part of the development of the Aruba Health App, which placed Aruba in the limelight. A word of gratitude to the DVG, LabHOH, AAA, ATA, Aruba Immigration, DCA, AZV, SETAR, Gama & SITA. A thank you also goes to Hilton Hotel Aruba, Butterly Farm Aruba, and Lola Taqueria for their efforts in the making of this pilot project.
