Birth Registrations - Every Child Deserves an Identity​

West and Central Africa has one of the lowest birth registration rates in the world, with only 59 per cent of children under five years of age who are registered – an estimated 46 million children. The registration rate for children under one year of age is even lower, standing at 53 per cent facing multiple deprivations and poverty.
