CRVS improvement processes underway in the Maldives
TAGS

The CRVS Stakeholders of Maldives started working on the improvement of CRVS as part of a larger project on the assessment, analysis and redesign for the birth and death registration business processes. This project, to be concluded by the end of March, is supported by ESCAP as part of it's long running collaboration with the Bloomberg Data for Health Initiative in support of the implementation of the Regional Action Framework on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific.

In the spirit of the Regional Action Framework, work is carried out in a collaborative manner by a core team led by the National Bureau of Statistics and including members from the Local Government Authority, the Department of National Registration, the Ministry of Health, Male City Council, the National Centre for Information Technology. The core team is currently developing a full description of the processes and will soon start a list of performance issues and prioritized redesign ideas for improving the processes. This work is informing the implementation of Maldives’ new ICT platform for civil registration and the revision of the civil registration act. It is also used as an opportunity for core team members to get more familiar with the work of the other agencies and improve collaboration among CRVS stakeholders.
