Supporting Syrians to Have Access to Effective and Secure Civil Registration Services
Since 2014, ILAC has supported civil registration services, allowing the population in Aleppo, Daraa/AlQuneitra and Idlib to register vital life events such as births, marriages and deaths. As of 2018, ILAC is supporting the operation of 14 centres, including four sub-centres. In total, ILAC supported documentation centres have issued 227,184 documents between 2014 and 2017.
This is a steady increase since the beginning of ILAC’s engagement in Syria, and provides evidence that there is an increased demand for civil registration services in areas where these services are no longer provided by the Government. The services provided are expected to enhance access to essential services, such as health, education and humanitarian aid.
