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:
- Bank accounts and credit facilities
- Travel documents
- Health services
- Social benefits
- Government grants and subsidies
- Education and bursaries
- 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.
