On the show today, the Technical Support Manager at the Birth and Deaths Registry, Nicholas Owusu Appiah, sat with me and told me all about the changes that technology had brought to the registry.

Making deliveries in Ghana can be a hustle. However, technologists have gotten busy and a group of young people have dreamt up Beam. You might have seen them on the BBC some weeks ago. Co-Founder of BEAM, Kingston Tagoe and Assistant Operations Manager, Precious Anim-Addo, joined me to talk about the solution.

Your feedback is always welcome so send it in but listen to the show first.
