Haiti - Cooperation : Substantial contribution from Japan to strengthen the ONI capacitie's
The Organization of American States (OAS) and the Government of Japan (permanent OAS observer since 1973) today announced their partnership to continue strengthening the capacities of the National Identification Office of Haiti (ONI) through a substantial contribution of the Japanese Government to an ongoing OAS project.

Through this cooperation, Japan joins a history of OAS commitment to consolidating Haiti’s identification system, starting with the OAS-supported introduction of the country’s identification card in 2005. The OAS also helped establish ONI and its 141 registration offices located throughout Haiti; assisted ONI in managing its database and in updating the electoral roll for five elections; Supported ONI in positioning the identification card as the required document not only to vote, but also to access public services and programs, and for citizens’ daily administrative and commercial transactions; and trained more than 2,000 ONI operators, coordinators and management staff.

Most recently, in 2023, the OAS launched a new effort with support from the Government of the United States, through USAID, to strengthen ONI’s capacities, expanding ID card distribution and registration system thanks to the deployment of mobile units throughout the country. The project "Supporting the Office of National Identification of Haiti in the re-registration, issuing and distribution of the new national identification card”,scheduled to conclude in 2025, is the one Japan is joining today.

OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro said "We are deeply thankful to the Government and people of Japan for this generous grant contribution and their steadfast support for Haiti. This project began with a contribution from USAID, and we acknowledge them here too. Japan’s funding will become even more important as Haiti’s National Identification Card is also crucial for the exercise of the economic, social, and political rights of Haitians. This is what we do: 'More rights for more people'"

Japan’s decisive involvement in this project will reinforce current efforts, enhancing the registration and issuance of identification cards while contributing to the improvement of data management and technological infrastructure. This new component also aims at strengthening capabilities to face crises that may impact access to the right to identity. In this regard, this contribution will also be dedicated to securing the energy autonomy of key offices for ONI operations.
