Tanzania's "digital lifestyle company", Tigo, has continued to support the Tanzania government's under-five birth registration initiative through an innovative mobile application that is accelerating provisioning of birth certificates for children under the age of five.
The programme brings registration closer to the community by establishing registration points at existing health facilities and at the community ward executive offices. This will enable parents in these two regions to have access to more than 598 registration points. Moreover, there will be more than 1,300 trained Registration Assistants equipped with 1,200 mobile phones donated by Tigo to support the registration process. The main aim of the initiative is to reduce the backlog of unregistered children and establishing a system for registering all new births in the two regions Read more about this initiative and the mobile app here: http://www.bizcommunity.co.tz/Article/209/78/159654.html
