One thing Jo and I learnt when we went over to the Solomon Islands with UNICEF, was that there’s a massive issue with the registration of births. In short, if a child doesn’t have a birth certificate it does not exist. This affects the government’s ability to plan successful education and immunisation programs, it increase the chances of child trafficking and more.
Here is a video from Campbell live the other night, on what the Morgan Foundation is doing with UNICEF in the Solomon Islands to get this situation sorted.
