NACCHO membership demonstrates commitment to public health and handling infectious diseases; expands platform reach to thousands of health agencies across the United States

Tracker Ventures Corp. ("Tracker" or the "Company") (CSE:TKR)(OTC PINK:TLOOF)(FWB:B2I) today announced that Contakt LLC ("Contakt World"), a technology company modernizing public health and safety, was accepted as an affiliate member by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO). NACCHO membership will provide Contakt World with member engagement and educational opportunities to support the nation's nearly 3,000 local health departments (LHD), including over 25,000 public health professionals

In the United States, approximately 2,000 out of 3,000 local health departments serve less than 50,000 people and are in dire need of resources1. All health agencies need persuasive messaging solutions and improved workflows to reach their communities with health education, vaccine information, and contact tracing.

Through its membership and ongoing collaboration with NACCHO, Contakt World will work with NACCHO members and staff to understand the current needs and state of technologies at the local health agency level, assemble working groups with NACCHO constituents, and directly address local health department needs through Contakt World's current and future solutions.

"The Contakt World solutions were built using human-centered design with local health officials in mind to help meet challenges they face, particularly in reaching marginalized populations," said Justin Beck, Founder, and CEO of Contakt World. "Since our founding, it's been our goal to thoroughly understand and provide health agencies with the technology and resources they need to do the critical work we need in our country. We are honored to align with NACCHO as a diamond affiliate member and look forward to a long partnership in combatting COVID-19 - and all diseases - to improve health equity nationwide."

Contakt World will use its diamond member benefits to present solutions to members through webinars, newsletters, and research. Contakt World plans to expand its thought leadership presence in the public health sphere by forming and convening working groups with NACCHO leadership and constituents to discuss contact tracing, vaccine distribution, epidemiology, and addressing the needs of a mid-and post-pandemic world. Through NACCHO, Contakt World will also have improved access to B2B/B2I markets in the health agency's jurisdictions to meet current and future crises.

"The pandemic has adversely impacted local health departments and the communities they serve. NACCHO's work to support our members on the frontlines in their communities is more critical now than ever before," said Dominic Catalfamo, NACCHO's Membership Manager. "We are excited to work with Contakt World and appreciate their commitment to our organization and service to local health agencies."
