Tanzania: Govt Rolls Out Birth Registration By Mobile Phone

Tanzania has launched a nationwide drive to help parents register their children’s births by mobile phone so the government can better plan health, education and other public services. The new system being rolled out across the country over the next five years allows a health worker to send the baby’s name, sex, date of birth and family details by phone to a central data base and a birth certificate is issued free of charge in days.
