TAGS

Following the passing of the fundamental Law on Civil Registration, Vital Statistics and Identification (CRVSID) on 1st July 2023, the General Department of Identification (GDI), Ministry of Interior, organized a nation-wide dissemination workshop on Friday, 15th December 2023. The development of the Law benefited from technical assistance by Vital Strategies and Global Health Advocacy Incubator (GHAI), with financial support from Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health (D4H) Initiative.

The commemorative workshop provided an opportunity to elaborate on the provisions of the law and offer clarification to senior management and practitioners on actual implementation of the law. A presentation by the Director General on the new civil registration process and interactive group discussions led by GDI, Ministry of Health, and Ministry of Justice answered many of the questions raised by participants of the workshop. Insights generated from the workshop will feed into the development of accompanying sub-decrees and proclamations, some of which are supported by Vital Strategies and GHAI.

Over 700 people including government officials from civil registration, health, and justice at both national and sub-national level, development partners, and civil society organizations attended the workshop. H.E. Aphisanthipundit Sar Sokha, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior, H.E. Chan Sotheavy, Permanent Secretary of State, and H.E. Lt. Gen. Top Neth, Director General of GDI presided over the event. For more information on the Law, please refer to the following link.
