INTRODUCTION

Vital registration in Ghana (The Gold Coast) began as far back as 1888. At its inception it was registration of deaths and not until 1912 that the registration of births was introduced. It started as Cemetries Ordinance of 1888 which was first amended in 1891. In 1912, it became Births and Deaths Burial Ordinance which was also amended in 1926. This was finally replaced with the Registration of Births and Deaths Act of 1965 (act 301) which is the legislation currently in force.

The Births and Deaths Registry was therefore established by Act 301 of 1965 within the Ministry of Local Government to handle and develop the births and death registration system in Ghana. Its core business is to provide accurate and reliable information on all births and deaths occurring within Ghana for socio – economic development of the country through registration and certification.
