Bringing legal identity closer to all
The key to serving citizens is to know who they are. A legal identity unlocks access to a wide range of services, including education, healthcare, voting, transportation, and financial services. And yet, about one fifth of the world’s population lives and dies unknown, uncounted, unregistered.
CRVS: a vital stepping stone towards legal identity
Civil Registration is the universal, continuous, permanent, and compulsory recording of vital events, including birth, death, marriage, and divorce. This produces Vital Statistics on population dynamics, health, and inequities, enabling governments to improve economic growth and citizens’ wellbeing.
One key example of the importance of CRVS: it provides key information on birth rates and health to enable effective immunization.
CRVS: it starts at birth
Birth registration is an essential stepping stone toward a good CRVS system. Birth registration should be easy, fast, and universal—but right now, one in three children does not officially exist. Until now, there has not been a single effective software solution for birth registration. Governments urgently require a CRVS solution that is flexible, easy to implement and maintain, and cost-effective. Of course, without death registration, insights will be incomplete. For a full picture, both must be combined.
