Toward Universal Birth Registration. A Systemic Approach to the Application of ICT

The objective of this publication is to analyze the legal, administrative, and technological requirements for the use of information and communications technology (ICT) for birth registration. The intended audience includes civil registry agencies or those countries that are considering the introduction of ICT, as well as those that already have the system in place. While many countries have already updated their civil registry frameworks to include ICT and while many are taking it into consideration, it is the authors’ hope that the guidelines can also serve as a means to review current arrangements.
