Laxton’s biometric registration kits and mobile devices can be used to register and record birth and deaths and the necessary biographic and biometric data inputs for a national civil registration database.

The registration of births and deaths, and other life events can be used to generate legal documents such as a National Identity Card that allow individuals to access basic rights, services, and benefits such as:

  1. Bank accounts and credit facilities
  2. Travel documents
  3. Health services
  4. Social benefits
  5. Government grants and subsidies
  6. Education and bursaries
  7. Employers, and business opportunities

The establishment of a civil registration database and recording birth and death data can be used to understand population growth rates, mortality rates, and other vital population statistics for national development planning purposes.
