Improving national CRVS systems in small Pacific Island States
TAGS

Last week, participants from Health, Statistics and Civil Registration in six small Pacific Island States met in Auckland, New Zealand to share experiences and identify ways forward to improve national CRVS systems. The participants visited the Auckland Civil Registration Office to identify procedures and structures which could inspire improvements in Cook Islands, Niue, Tuvalu, Tokelau, Nauru and American Samoa and spent the week discussing national CRVS improvement plans, activities and progress. The small Pacific Island States share some of the same challenges but are also identifying shared solutions to issues, including possible collaboration on Cause of Death coding, IT systems and data sharing. The meeting was organised by several partners of the Brisbane Accord Group, which coordinates CRVS support activities in the Pacific. Organizers included the Pacific Civil Registrars Network, SPC, Australian Bureau of Statistics and ESCAP.
