In addition to the regional initiative in Asia-Pacific, other regions are active in improving CRVS systems. These include the Africa Programme on Accelerated Improvement of Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Systems (APAI-CRVS), and the Inter-American Development Bank's work on legal identity.

Recently, a Global Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Group was convened by the United Nations Statistics Division.

A Global Financing Facility in support of the UN Secretary-General’s Every Woman Every Child Global Strategy also includes activities in support of CRVS systems.
