Activity Recap

UNICEF Report:

In Nigeria, UNICEF organized a national workshop with key religious leaders to engage religious communities as advocates for universal birth registration. As part of the workshop, a joint work plan was developed with the National Population Commission on specific actions to improve coverage in under-performing communities. The effectiveness of interventions by religious leaders will be assessed through regular on-site reporting using ‘Rapid SMS’ technology.
