WCC launch HERA birth registration pilot with MIIT, Myanmar

Utrecht – NL, February 10, 2020. WCC announces a pilot project, working together with the Myanmar Institute of Information Technology (MIIT) on a birth registration system.

WCC Group is joining forces with the Myanmar Institute of Information Technology (MIIT).  The aim of this cooperation is to create a birth registration process fit for the Myanmar context. To this end, the project is built on WCC’s Civil Registration & Vital Statistics (CRVS) solution. Namely, HERA.

Effective registration of CRVS is clearly key to the wealth and well-being of a nation and its citizens. Yet over 100 countries lack adequate structures and systems to register vital events such as birth and deaths. As a result, these countries are unable to benefit from using CRVS data. What is more, around 1 billion people in the world cannot prove their legal identity.

WCC HERA covers the full spectrum of CRVS from birth to death. Uniquely, it fully supports UN Sustainable Development Goal 16.9 (‘by 2030, provide legal identity for all, including birth registration’). In addition, it works on a range of devices, including low-tech options. It is therefore easy to use anywhere, from modern well-equipped hospitals to remote rural situations.

In the pilot, WCC and MIIT will first identify and engage stakeholders in the birth registration process. WCC will then customize HERA for the Myanmar birth registration workflow. This will incude translation. Participating private hospitals will next test and validate the solution. And finally, WCC and MIIT will  present the project’s results  and HERA capabilities to the Myanmar stakeholders.

Although HERA supports UN SDG 16.9 and follows UN standards and recommendations, WCC is familiar with the challenges of implementing birth registration systems. For this reason, WCC values collaborations with local authorities and groups that can strengthen its solutions and implementation processes. In doing so, WCC  is also aware that it can make a beneficial contribution to educational institutions and future generations in these countries.
