Handbook for community-led birth registration in Kenya

The community-led birth registration model documented in this handbook focuses on improving accessibility and ease of registration for births that occur at the community level.

It provides an overview of a process that starts in the community and ends with the issuance of a birth certificate.

It also provides step-by-step guidance for each individual involved in the process: the informant (mother, father, guardian, occupier of the house in which the child was born), notifier (community health volunteer, village elder, assistant chief, chief) and validator and registrar (CRS Registration Officer at the sub-county level).
