Roadmap for Digital Birth Registration: Insights on Scale and Sustainability from Pakistan

This Roadmap for Digital Birth Registration is a guide for MNOs and their partners who are seeking opportunities to achieve greater impact, efficiency and efficacy in digital birth registration. Drawing on lessons from, and our recommendations for, the Telenor-supported DBR project in Pakistan, this Roadmap provides a number of insights, examples of good practice, and recommendations for MNOs and their partners at all stages of a DBR project. These include: Designing for Impact, Processes and Technology, Raising Awareness and Achieving Sustainability. While many of the insights and recommendations found in the Roadmap are specific to Pakistan, these should be highly relevant and applicable to birth registration stakeholders across other developing markets.
