We currently capture phone number of primary contact using Household Registration. What I have observed is that CHT restricts same phone number to be used on a different primary contacts. While this might sound logical, it restricts our CHVs from continuing with household registrations on the field.
Our CHVs have told us that some primary contacts do not have phone numbers. Hence, they ask the CHVs to save the phone number of the sheha ( head of the locality) who will then inform the client when a CHV wants to visit them or relay any info from CHV to client.
Therefore, can we drop the duplicate phone number check to fulfill this use case?
