Background • 48%* of under 5 children registered • Civil Registration Code, not in line with international standards (reviewed and to be passed by Parliament in 2018). • Inter-ministerial group (GITEV), with all key line ministries involvement active in ensuring that the CRVS agenda is at the forefront. • Strong donor relations – UNICEF, WHO, *Percentage to be updated once 2017 Census data becomes available
  3. 3. Importance of Gender Data • Cultural practices which deminish the active role of women in society. • Better analysis of gender demographic within specific areas which assist in appropriate health services.
  4. 4. Improvements • Increased awareness of gender demographics assisting in decrease of child marriage. • Appropriate direct interventions to be carried out in geographic areas with higher female population and where harmful traditional practices occur. • Appropriate actions to be taken into account for young women which become mothers
  5. 5. Challenges • Parents preference to invest more on boys rather than girls which is also reflected in the birth registration of boys rather than boys. • Increased birth registration of girls can be reflected in increased access to education and other basic social services.
