The Global Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Group and the World Bank Group Open Learning Campus, in partnership with the Korea Ministry of Strategy and Finance just launched the first-ever 21st century, state-of-the-art, comprehensive CRVS eLearning course yesterday at a high-level event in Seoul, Republic of Korea. The development of this course demonstrates the commitment of development partners and governments to work closely together in achieving Sustainable Development Goal Target 16.9: By 2030, provide legal identity for all, including birth registration.

The goal of the course is to train policy makers, public and civil servants, university students, researchers, development practitioners, and civil society organizations by providing practical tools and approaches in building and maintaining state-of-the-art CRVS systems that are linked to identity management systems and tailored to local contexts, which will eventually contribute to alleviating poverty and promoting shared prosperity. This interactive course was built on materials from the United Nations’ Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System and the 2015 Training Course on CRVS Systems of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention International Statistics Program.

The new eLearning course is presented in 13 modules. The first three modules are core modules that all learners must take; the remaining modules, which are optional, provide more in-depth knowledge on a range of topics.

Module 1. Importance of CRVS Systems
Module 2. Overview of CRVS Systems
Module 3. Institutional Arrangements of CRVS Systems
Module 4. Legal Frameworks of CRVS Systems
Module 5. Birth Registration and Adoption
Module 6. Death Registration
Module 7. Marriage and Divorce Registration
Module 8. Analysis and Use of Vital Statistics
Module 9. Presentation and Dissemination of Vital Statistics
Module 10. CRVS Digitization
Module 11. CRVS Assessment and Strategic Planning
Module 12. Identity Management Systems
Module 13. Refugees, Internally Displaced Persons, Stateless Persons and CRVS Systems
