Over 51 million births go unregistered every year, leaving children invisible - without a legal identity or nationality. This makes them vulnerable to abuse and exploitation, and denies them access to services such as health and education.

Every child is entitled to a birthday. I call on the United Nations to make birth registration a global priority by:
- ensuring that birth registration is highlighted in relevant UN policies and partnerships
- supporting governments to provide all children with a birth certificate
- harnessing the UN system to support accessible birth registration systems.
