The papers presented will focus on topics such as Measuring Maternal Mortality using Civil Registration Data in the Philippines, Birth registration inequalities: a case study of Pakistan, Maximizing completeness of data and instilling trust in birth registration in Afghanistan, and an In‐depth review and needs assessment of CRVS System to develop an action plan for overall improvement of the system in Pakistan.
