One-third of children are not officially listed Not every country has a registrar


About 230 million childbirths are never registered, meaning that every third child under the age of one in the world is not officially listed - according to the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).

"Registration is more than a right. So, first and foremost, societies recognize the identity and existence of a child. Registration of birth is the key to guaranteeing, not abandoning, depriving children," quoted by Geeta Rao Guptba, UNICEF Deputy Chief Executive Officer, on the organization's website.
THE The Parental Rights of All Children: Inequalities and Trends in Registration cнmы collects statistical analysis of significant data from 161 countries, and presents the latest available data and estimates of registrations in 2012, globally, only about 60 published registrations. The rates are quite different in the country: the smallest number of children are officially registered in South Asia and Black Africa. The lowest levels are registered in Somalia (3 percent), Liberia (4), Ethiopia (7), Zambia (14), Bankruptcy and Tanzania (16), Yemen (17), Guinea-Bissau (24), Pakistan ( in the Democratic Republic of Congo (28 percent).
In many cases, even if the child is registered, there is no official roulette record. For example, in East Africa only half of the registered children have a birth certificate. Globally, every seventh child does not have a birth certificate. In some countries, this is due to unaffordable costs. In some countries, no certificate of birth is issued, and as a result, the family does not have an official record of the child's birth.

Children who are not registered at birth or who do not have identity documents are often excluded from education, health care, and social security. If children are divorced from their parents, for example during natural disasters, during conflicts, or in the aftermath of a trial, uniting with family is much more difficult if there is no official document on them - call attention.
