OpenCRVS Proof of Concept

Calling all countries looking to transform their civil registration process. We were delighted to announce the launch of the OpenCRVS Country Hackathon in partnership with ID4Africa.

The country hackathon gives three selected countries an opportunity to test the digitisation of their civil registration systems by conducting a Proof of Concept (PoC) using OpenCRVS and present their experiences at the ID4Africa AGM in May in Kenya.

Why is this a great opportunity?
