Civil Registration, Haiti
Due to the the massive earthquake that hit Haiti in January 2010, the Government of Haiti decided to enhance the existing Haiti´s Civil Registry and Identity System with biometric technology. The project started in 2012 and was successfully completed in 2015 by our partner, Smartmatic.
In this large scale modernization project, Innovatrics AFIS was deployed in order to migrate and deduplicate the existing fingerprint database of 5,2 million enrollees and to secure that each newly enrolled citizen has an unique identity. Innovatrics IDKit SDK software was used in above 700 enrollment stations and assisted by increasing the database to the current number of more than 8,5 million enrollees.
Thanks to our technology, the new identity management system, among the other things, guarantees the accuracy and security of the data, and in the long run, minimizes the possibility of identity theft related fraud in elections, censuses or border control.
