Speaking at the launching ceremony of the new birth certificate at the Bureau’s headquarters on the Capitol Bypass on recently, the Director of BVS, Prince Kaba Momolu told reporters that the new birth certificate has some sophisticated security features which will be difficult for anyone to duplicate.

Also speaking at the program, A. Varfee Tulay, Deputy Health Minister who served as proxy for the Minister of Health proper, Dr. Williemina Jallah said the new birth certificate will help eradicate some suspected malpractices at the Bureau.

He said the newly introduced birth credential has twenty different security features, thus making it easier to detect duplication.

He furthered asserted that with the bringing of a new automated system, the Bureau will be able to produce between 300 and 500 birth certificates daily, unlike the manual system previously being used.

Tulay used the occasion to admonish all employees of the Bureau to discharge their duties effectively and to avoid acts that would undermine the Ministry of Health’s drive to transform the Liberian health sector.

Also, in attendance was Assistant Health Minister Chea Sanford Wesseh who lauded the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) for supporting the bureau to introduce the new system adding, the mechanized system will allow for services to be accessed both online and offline.
