Keywords: UNICEF, children, Philippines, Birth Registration

Main shooting locations: Manila, Philippines

Main sequences: Over half of all births in developing countries are unregistered. The majority of these unregistered births are in Asia and the Pacific region. Unregistered children lack rights of protection and face difficulties enrolling in schools. The major barrier to child registration is a lack of awareness of birth registration as a fundamental right.
