      Example: UNICEF

      Apart from being the first legal
      acknowledgment of a child's
      existence, registration of births
      is fundamental to the realization
      of a number of rights and a number
      of practical needs including:

      - Effectively countering forced marriage
      of young girls before they are legally
      eligible, without proof of age.
      - Enforcing laws relating to minimum
      age for employment, assisting efforts
      to prevent child labor.
      - Ensuring that children enroll in school
      at the right age.
      - Getting a passport, opening a bank
      account, obtaining credit, voting or
      finding employment.
      - Protecting children from harassment
      by police and other law enforcement
      officers.
      - Protecting children who are trafficked,
      [or placed into prostitution], including
      [their full restoration] through repatriation
      and family reunion.
      - Protecting young people from underage
      military service or conscription.
      - Providing access to health care.
      - Providing access to immunization.
      - Securing the child's right to a nationality,
      at the time of birth or at a later stage.
