DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ONLINE BIRTH RATE MONITORING INFORMATION SYSTEM
BACKGROUND OF STUDY
In Enugu United Nations children fund (UNICEF) started in 1983 and “A” field office covers 10 states, The “A” field office is one of the four field offices of UNICEF in Nigeria, it was established in 1969 as a way of taking UNICEF and its programs closer to the people.
Some international organizations that worked with developing actions in operating and expanding early childhood service had gone along way I education and care of world’s children and parent these has gone a long way in monitoring the birthrate of children.
On the other hand, from about the three middle 1970’s there have been several types of evidence indicating growing awareness of Childs birth as a problem, this has gone a long way in monitoring birthrate in hospitals and health centres reduction in attitudes favourable to it in the global Network and the formulation of policies and law designed to curb it.
the increasing attention to research on early brain development and on short-and long-term effects of children’s participation in quality early childhood program along with the growing government commitment of lifelong learning in the Education for all conferences (1990,2000) has led to growing interest in early childhood programs and services in counties around the world.
It important in collecting accurate and useful information in about childhood service in persecutor country or region. The guidelines presented forces on two areas of particular concern for policy-makers data collection and system monitoring. To accommodate the needs of both developing and developed Nations we offer a number of different approaches to data collection and monitoring. Provide practical example of data collection methods that can be used t examine courage and quality two areas that are especially important for policy-making decisions. Finally the unique demands of collecting data to be used in cross- national research.
The major type of early childhood services in both developed and developing countries the general information about early childhood policies, indicators, and methods of data collection. The two specific example of early childhood policies, with suggest indicators for these policies and recommended methods of data collection. The next program discusses the special requirements of National data collection if the findings are to be reported cross-nationally.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
the factors that influences the course of development with organization and its accomplishment is good to be embraced so as to ensure that adequate majors are taken to monitor birth rate the united Nation children fund (UNICEE) Enugu, till now can not keep track of its registered new born babies accurately but gets its data nod information through National.
