(Newsletter: CRVS Insight November 2021)

The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of well-functioning CRVS systems which, as the SCORE for Health Data Technical Package assessment has shown, are still not producing data of sufficient quality to guide public health decision-making in many parts of the world.

In response, WHO is working with partners to prioritize CRVS strengthening at global, regional, and country levels. Efforts to strengthen CRVS systems by countries have already led to important lessons and experiences that we can together draw from, as we scale this work more broadly.

This meeting will focus on:

Introducing partners to WHO’s global efforts in CRVS strengthening and the WHO CRVS Strategic Implementation Plan 2021-2025;

Promoting a stronger role of health in CRVS and ensuring alignment with current WHO regional CRVS strategies, addressing the key concerns of the different regions;

Reviewing CRVS partners’ activities and discussing potential collaborative opportunities; and,

Identifying and addressing the current gaps in CRVS systems.

Interested parties can access the technical partnership meeting via Zoom with the following information or contact Dr. Azza Badr ( for any additional queries.

9 – 10 November 15:00 – 18:00 CET
