What if... Every Child was in the Picture?


What if... every child was in the picture? Civil registration and vital statistics: The case for investment

This is Plan International's Count Every Child fundraising kit aimed at those seeking a clear picture of what birth registration is within a civil registration and vital statistics context.

The kit is a complete folder featuring a general insert on birth registration, what it is and what Plan International is aiming for; a digital birth registration insert that details how digital birth registration is different, the benefits and how much it costs to implement; and a number of detailed country profiles with overviews, data and specific funding asks from those countries.

19 countries contributed to the toolkit: Bangladesh, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Haiti, Indonesia, Kenya, Laos, Mozambique, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda and Zambia. It provides an overview of their current birth registration rate, government initiatives, Plan International's work and their future plans.
