This comprehensive assessment reviewed the main aspects of Cambodia's Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system using the WHO guidance tool. These include the legal and regulatory framework; registration, certification and coding practices; and the compilation, tabulation and use of the resulting data. The focus throughout the assessment was on births, deaths and causes of death, because these are fundamental to guide public health programes, monitor population dynamics and measure key health indicators.
The aim of undertaking the comprehensive assessment in Cambodia was to help responsible authorities obtain a clear and comprehensive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their civil registration and vital statistics systems, and generate the evidence base for corrective action.
