Trial of data sharing in the Pacific
TAGS

The Pacific Civil Registrars Network (PCRN) has been working to facilitate cross-border sharing of civil registration records where birth has occurred in one country and the death occurs in another country. This is a common situation in many Pacific countries and causes national security problems with personal identities remaining open following death and incomplete mortality data. In April, death record sharing will be trialed between New Zealand and Niue, Cook Islands and New South Wales (Australia). PCRN has a paper outlining the issues of cross-border record sharing, which  is available from jeff.montgomery@dia.govt.nz.
