A performing civil registry system is essential for the protection of the population rights related to education, participation in elections, healthcare and other guaranteed social benefits. The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) adopted a new State Program on the development of the civil registry for 2014 - 2019 that requires strong support in implementation. The reform will also improve the State's ability to use Statistical information in its own planning processes. This Program includes elements such as the legislative revision towards a simplification of the System, development of staff capacities and the introduction of reliable (possibly electronic) civil registration and archiving system.


Women's, men's and children's human rights (civil, social, political and economic) are better protected through the strengthened provision of civil registration services and increased public access to the system.
