Child Protection Issue Brief: Birth Registration

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR) has made birth registration a global strategic priority. The Framework for the Protection of Children (2012) issued by UNHCR in 2012 also includes a specific objective to ensure girls and boys obtain legal documentation, including birth certificates, in a non-discriminatory manner (Goal 4). While other humanitarian and child protection entities focus on broader issues of strengthening the overall civil registration system, UNHCR will focus its efforts on overcoming specific registration obstacles affecting persons of concern.

This briefing note outlines key actions that can be taken by UNCHR and its partners to ensure access to birth registration for all children.
