The application enables the users to receive direct and proactive notifications in case of detection of any registered infected person, for the purpose of requesting direct medical assistance from the Ministry of Health.

According to the health system and its implementing regulations in Saudi Arabia, the Ministry of Health has approved health standards on which the "Tabaud" application has been developed.
