With the historic launch of the NIIMS project, Kenya joined other developed nations such as the US, Europe, United Arabs Emirates, India and Australia which have successfully used integrated data systems to manage their citizens information.

President Kenyatta said the NIIMS exercise will not only transform civil registration and data management in the country but also tame corruption and fast-track the implementation of the Big 4 development agenda.
