(Newsletter: CRVS Insight April 2022)

The Lao Statistics Bureau (LSB) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) convened a national stakeholders meeting to discuss strengthened collaboration for the production of vital statistics in line with international standards in Lao PDR. 

The consultation meeting on 17 March 2022 was the first step taken in response to the results of a regional situational assessment of national vital statistics, commissioned by the UNFPA Regional Office for Asia Pacific in 2021. The study identified areas where capacity building is needed to support the timely production, dissemination and use of vital statistics in Lao PDR. UNFPA will continue to work closely with LSB to utilize existing data from the Census and the Lao Social Indicator Survey (LSIS) for the production of up-to-date vital statistics.
