Eritrea is categorized among the countries that have less than 40 percent rates of birth registration. UNICEF supports the Government of Eritrea to promote access to birth registration with special emphasis on the most marginalized children in hard-to-reach communities. UNICEF’s support at the grassroots level has resulted in an increase in registration of children under five, however, huge gaps still exist in specific regions. Birth registration is part of joint programming with UNFPA and UNDP.
