FG, UNICEF to Digitise Birth Registration.

The United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) and the Federal Government are to collaborate on digitalizing birth registration in the country.

Ms Emelia Allan, a child protection manager with the UNICEF Kano field office disclosed this at a two-day capacity-building workshop organized for journalists from Katsina, Kano and Jigawa in Kano.

She said birth registration is important in any country because the data is used for planning, adding that without effective registration, the planning will fail.
