Birth registration

31.The Committee reiterates its previous recommendation that the State party strengthen and further develop measures to ensure that all children born within the national territory, including those belonging to minorities and living in remote areas, are registered. The Committee urges the State party to create institutional birth registration structures at all levels that are accessible and free, such as mobile units in rural and remote areas and units targeting internally displaced persons and those living in refugee camps, in order to encourage birth registration. The Committee recommends that the State party seek technical assistance from UNICEF and other United Nations specialized agencies in the implementation of these recommendations(see CRC/C/ERI/CO/3,para.33).
