As one of the final steps in the project for assessing inequalities in civil registration in Fiji, a closing workshop was convened from 6 to 7 February in Suva, Fiji. The closing workshop, which follows an inception workshop and two national capacity building workshops which were held in 2022, provided an opportunity to present and share findings in inequalities in birth and death registration. A variety of stakeholders attended the workshop, including representatives from Fiji Bureau of Statistics (FBoS), Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MoHMS), the Registrar General’s Office (Ministry of Justice), Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts, Fiji Police Force, Ministry of Women, Ministry of iTaukei Affairs, Fiji National Provident Fund, as well as representatives from ESCAP, UNICEF, SPC and WHO. Stakeholders discussed the findings from the inequality assessment, the potential policy implications, and next steps to ensure disparities in registration are addressed.
