*CRVS = Civil Registration & Vital Statistics
Legal identity is a foundational right: it’s the only one that leads to all vital services.
The United Nations have made it a priority, and legal registration of children it is enlisted in the Sustainable Development Goal 16.9.
In emerging countries, half the birth declarations never reach the national records and if the data is recovered, it’s usually outdated, making public policies difficult and the distribution of benefits uncontrollable.
iCivil solves the causes of these situations with a pragmatic, real-time solution based on existing and proven technology.
For the wellbeing of families and individuals.
Simple and cost-efficient solutions
Demonstrating the effectiveness through implementation
iCivil is the only solution that complies with the UN’s SGD in “providing a legal identity for all by 2030”.
iCivil is a modern and centralized CRVS (Civil Registration and Vital Statistics) solution that complies with the SGD 16.9. The birth registrations are performed by a health officer and automatically result in the legal registration at the Civil Registration Center.
After 4 years of a successful pilot project in Burkina Faso, iCivil is now being rolled-out in the entire country.
iCivil’s DNA stems from two complimentary cultures : on one side, a perfect knowledge of the cultural, geographical and structural constraints of Africa, and on the other side, the innovation and excellence of a French high-tech company.
iCivil is the brainchild of Adama Sawadogo, a brilliant entrepreneur, philanthropist and engineer from Burkina Faso and Francis Bourrières, an award-winning French inventor and entrepreneur.
iCivil generates and records a unique number that is used to identify each citizen. The pairing of a simple yet genius “bubble code” and an encrypted SMS enables iCivil to send sensitive data to the national Civil Registration Center for archiving.
The solution is built on affordable technology and its management costs are lower than any existing system.
Every individual becomes a player in the development of their country.
Knowledge of population enables social planification and access to the digital economy.
Development policies are measured with precision.
iCivil has been acclaimed by many international and regional institutions for its ingenuity and simplicity.
