OPENCRVS: A standards-based solution for civil registration

Plan International will start work to build OpenCRVS, an open-source, standards based, software platform for rights based CRVS. Within the framework of the 5 year (2016-2020) strategy and work programme of the APAI-CRVS, Plan International proposes to lead an initiative to develop a standards based open-source CRVS software platform, OpenCRVS. In the first phase, a prototype to showcase priority workflows to country stakeholders and development partners will be developed and should be ready by the end of August.

The key objectives of the project are as follows;

1. Make OpenCRVS available as open-source software to provide countries with a freely available option for CRVS digitisation that is aligned with UN standards, international best-practice and a rights-based approach;

2. Provide OpenCRVS documentation that allows countries to quickly and efficiently install, configure and rollout the software to support CRVS in a particular country context;

3. Create training materials so that end-users and system administrators are able to maximize their effectiveness using OpenCRVS.
