One (1) Outreach campaign conducted in Province • § To ensure that Late Registration of Births is eradicated by the end of December 2015, the Province has identified 211 Late Registration of Birth Hotspots. § Fourteen (14) Mobile offices, from within the Province and the neighbouring Provinces (Free State and Kwa. Zulu Natal), will be deployed to cover the areas within a period of one (1) month. The deployment for Eastern Cape will be from 11 to 28 August 2015. § In preparation for the massive outreach, the Province has conducted six (6) mini outreaches, covering the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro and the following District Municipalities: OR Tambo, Alfred Nzo, Chris Hani, Joe Gqabi and Sarah Baartman.
Birth Registration within 30 days and Smart ID Card Projects • The Province has identified challenges which affects its performance in both target, and has appointed two District Managers Operations (DMOs) to be the champions of both Projects. Strategies have been developed. n Birth registrations: focus is on enhancement of birth registrations at health facilities. The Strategy is looking at optimal utilisation of health facilities, thus the teams’ main objective is to ensure that health facilities with high birth rate are adequately resourced in order that children are registered before the mothers are discharged; put monitoring measures to catch up/follow up on mothers who leave the health facilities without registering the child, either because of cultural beliefs or the mother did not bring the Identity Document when visiting the maternal clinics or hospitals. n. Smart ID Card: . focus all the attention and the capacity towards achieving the projected smart card target; to identify all the possible pitfalls which will hinder the achievement of the targets; and to put measures to mitigate identified risks.
