Fiji to Digitize and Consolidate Birth Records
TAGS

A project in Fiji funded by the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Global Grants Program and led by the Fiji Bureau of Statistics is working to digitize and consolidate birth records across the nation. 

Since the project's inception in August of 2021, the project team has collected data on 26,228 births from 27 hospitals and maternity facilities. Currently, the team is in the process of entering this data in their national database for statistical analysis, after which it will be used in the development of a Vital Statistics report which will inform Fiji’s national policy. 

By the project’s completion in December of 2022, this work will enable governments to provide reliable reports to support important national and international commitments as well as for regional development frameworks such as the Regional Action Framework for civil registration and vital statistics in Asia and the Pacific.
