This formative research provided insight into the barriers to and enablers of timely birth registration and endeavoured to identify what is working well, to allow for a better understanding of the type of reforms that will be required. The findings from the formative research served as a guide to inform the design and development of a Communication for Development (C4D) strategy to address barriers from community to policy levels and to strengthen the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics System (CRVS) system in Namibia. The formative research was led by Anthrologica, with input from Common Thread, UNICEF and the Ministry of Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety and Security (MHAISS). The development of the C4D strategy was led by Common Thread, with input from Anthrologica, UNICEF and MHAISS.
