WEFOUNDBirth Registration: An Aid in Protecting the Lives and Rights of Children (Classic Reprint)


Every child has the right to birth registration, yet birth registration does not routinely feature in humanitarian action. 

Birth registration in emergencies (BRiE) encompasses interventions that promote and improve girls and boys access to continuous, permanent, and non-discriminatory birth registration services in humanitarian situations.

The BRiE toolkit is a step-by-step guide developed to support the analysis, design, and testing of birth registration interventions pre and post emergency. By using the toolkit you will plan, develop, and prove an effective BRiE model, at relatively low cost, in order to scale to all affected populations.

Universal birth registration is also part of a system of vital statistics, which is essential for sound economic and social planning. Birth registration is therefore not only a fundamental human right, but also a key to ensuring the fulfillment of other rights.

Most countries have mechanisms in place for registering births. However, coverage, the type of information obtained and the use of resulting data can differ, based on a country’s infrastructure, administrative capacity, availability of funds, access to the population and technology for data management. Rates of registration vary substantially among countries, due to these and other factors.

Large differences can be found in the coverage of birth registration among regions. Western Europe and North America have the highest levels of birth registration, with fully 100 per cent of children under 5 registered. This is followed by Eastern Europe and Central Asia, at 99 per cent, and Latin America and the Caribbean, at 95 per cent.

A birth certificate is a vital record that documents the birth of a child . The term "birth certificate" can refer to either the original document certifying the circumstances of the birth or to a certified copy of or representation of the ensuing registration of that birth. Depending on the jurisdiction, a record of birth might or might not contain verification of the event by such as a midwife or doctor.

The documentation of births is a practice widely held throughout human civilization, especially in China, Egypt, Greece, Rome, and Persia. The original purpose of vital statistics was for tax purposes and for the determination of available military manpower. In England , births were initially registered with churches, who maintained registers of births. This practice continued into the 19th century. [1] The compulsory registration of births with the United Kingdom government is a practice that originated at least as far back as 1853. [2] The entire United States did not get a standardized system until 1902. [3]

Most countries have statutes and laws that regulate the registration of births. In all countries, it is the responsibility of the mother's physician , midwife , hospital administrator, or the parents of the child to see that the birth is properly registered with the appropriate government agency .
