Register births, deaths here

08 February 2018 | Health

Rhino Park Private Hospital last week donated an office for the registration of births and deaths to the Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration (HAI) thanks to a new Public Private Partnership between the ministry and the hospital.

Speaking at the opening of the office, Deputy Minister of HAI, Erastus Uutoni, welcomed the gesture, saying that it is the first of its kind to be undertaken between the ministry and a private hospital.

He emphasised the importance of birth registrations, saying that all children have the right to be registered immediately after birth. He added that the issuance of death certificates is a prime source for state mortality statistics and is also significant to medical and health-related research.

The office is open to all members of the public. – Nampa
