AccessRC – Digital Self-Enrolment

The AccessRC app is a self-registration app designed by the IFRC. The app delivers integrated data collection, automated verification process, segregation of duties and fraud prevention tools, data analysis, diverse payment options with global financial service providers, and an interface to communicate with service recipients. 

The objective of the AccessRC app project is for the digital enrolment model to become a standard option that can be applied in a variety of contexts globally alongside in-person models and further integration into local systems where feasible, to ensure that National Societies can better engage and support vulnerable people pre- and post-crisis, across borders and program services and that humanitarian assistance is distributed more effectively.
