Belize: Consultancy for Development of Action Plan for the Modernization of Birth Registration System in Belize

NGO Jobs / UN Jobs Vacancy



Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Belize
Closing date: 28 Dec 2018

TOR Summary:

Purpose

Develop an implementation and project plan for achieving full birth registration coverage in Belize by 2019

Expected fee

National Consultant

Location

working visits to six districts in Belize

Duration

4 months

Start Date

January 2019

Reporting to

UNICEF Child Protection Officer and Solicitor General of Belize

Background

Birth registration in Belize

A birth certificate is a fundamental human right and is indeed the “first right” the child enjoys and without a birth certificate, many other rights are denied the child. Children whose births are not registered are more susceptible to abuse, trafficking and exploitation. Also, national and sub-national planning for social services (education, health etc) is difficult as inaccurate data can affect forecasts which will in turn affect adequate provision of services including immunization and post-care services for babies and children.

In Belize, non -registration of births of children is more pronounced in communities where access to birth registration facilities is not readily available. Improvements in the system has, however, been noted in recent years, in 2013 UNICEF Belize and Vital Statistics embarked on a Birth Registration Campaign, this Campaign ensured that children who were not previously registered became registered. Additionally, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Vital Statistics and Ministry of Health has been signed. This agreement is an important component of strengthening Birth Registration in the country however, additional support is needed to strengthen the roles and responsibilities outlined in the MoU and update the MoU.

Despite these improvements, a significant approximate 6% of children remain ‘outside’ of the system and are not registered at all. Children from poor families and those in rural areas are least likely to have a birth certificate.

In 2015 the Government commissioned the development of a Bottleneck Analysis, that draft report outlines barriers and bottlenecks to programme progress and it makes recommendations for how to address these bottlenecks.

Justification

The Modernization of Birth Registration System Project with the support from the British High Commission in Belize and UNICEF is seeking to engage a team to develop an action plan for modernization of the birth registration system in Belize.
