MALÉ, MALDIVES – 01 August 2017. The Honourable Minister of Education, Dr. Aishath Shiham, launched the Maldives Education Management Information System (MEMIS) on 16 July 2017, in a ceremony in Malé attended by the UNICEF Regional Director for South Asia, Dr. Jean Gough. The launch of MEMIS is an historic achievement in transforming the national education system in the country from an annual survey of the education system to a real-time, student-based information system. By tracking each student from the time they enter the education system, until they leave, MEMIS will now help to ensure every citizen of the Maldives obtains a high quality education at all levels. This is one of the most important steps in improving the lives of the citizens of the country and to achieving sustainable development in the years ahead.
