New website and resource library to support improvement of CRVS systems launched
TAGS

Strengthening CRVS systems, which play a key role in monitoring and facilitating progress towards the SDGs, requires partnerships and knowledge sharing. The new website www.CRVSsystems.ca is an initiative of the Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems. It aims to serve the global CRVS community of practice, and all those working to improve their civil registration and vital statistics systems.
 
The site features a free resource library with research, tools, videos, and guidance documents on civil registration, health information, and vital statistics systems. It also offers access to an online CRVS course, technical assistance, and a directory of experts.
 
The Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems is a global knowledge hub on civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems located at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Ottawa, Canada. It was established with seed funding from Global Affairs Canada and IDRC, and it contributes directly to the work of the Global Financing Facility in Support of Every Woman Every Child (GFF).
