Digitally Transforming the CRVS and Birth Registration System in Samoa
TAGS

Samoa Bureau of Statistics (SBS) and the UNDP Accelerator Lab (AccLab) have been working together on an exciting and holistic journey of modernizing and digitally transforming the CRVS System in Samoa, with a sharp focus on strengthening the birth registration system.  

Through this successful partnership, they are not only pushing the needle on safeguarding every child's inalienable right to a name and identity, but also positively contributing to Samoa's efforts on gender empowerment.  

AccLab has engaged with a broad range of stakeholders including mothers, pregnant women, hospital nurses, mid-wives, village mayors (Sui Tamatai o Nu’u (STN) and Sui O Nu’u (SN)) and faith leaders. AccLab also partnered with a telecommunications company and conducted interviews of 400 respondents across Samoa to unpack the community’s understanding on the importance of the birth registration system, challenges and perspectives on timely birth registration responsibilities.

The full blog post which shares AccLab's insights on the catalytic effects of strong birth registration for gender empowerment in Samoa can be read here
