UNICEFestimates that Nigeria will have the highest absolute rise in child population by 2025.

To account for this rapidly growing population and address challenges associated with getting children registered, the Government, with the support of UNICEF and partners, has established a monitoring and evaluation system called RapidSMS.

This procedure provides a clearer picture of the birth registration system, where problems are and how they can be solved, which ultimately translates into more children being able to access their right to a birth certificate.
