“The study identified a general lack of coordination and collaboration at all levels of government concerning birth registration. As indicated above, the Births and Deaths Registry is not well connected to other organizations such as the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education which could be important partners in performing its tasks. It does not appear to have any appreciable influence with the Ministry of Finance that could improve its funding. It seems that possible partners such as the Ghana Statistical Service would be willing to collaborate but are faced with an apparent lack of interest on the part of the BDR.”
