UNICEF has just published three videos on birth registration in the Pacific, the videos highlight the different challenges as well as some of the common solutions for birth registration. The 15 minute video on Kiribati 'My name, My future: Birth registration in Kiribati' explains the Kiribati government's plans to decentralize civil registration services to all provinces and expand the number of service points and agencies with authority to provide civil registration. These activities will ensure increased registration coverage of vital events, in particular births. Recognizing that disaggregated data is instrumental for government planning and decision making, the video also showcases the recently introduced electronic databases that allow countries to further disaggregate data.
