UNICEF supports birth registration in MalawiListen /
UNICEF is supporting birth registration to facilitate access to social services and combat such abuses as child trafficking and early marriage in Malawi.
The south-eastern African country has made much progress in reducing child mortality, which has dropped by some 60 percent in the last twenty years.
By implementing the birth registration programme together with other initiatives, more children born in Malawi stand a better chance of growing up healthy and being able to enjoy their rights.
