TAGS

(Newsletter: CRVS Insight August 2020)

As part of its ongoing support for countries improving the performance of their CRVS systems, particularly death registration and causes of death, the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia (SEARO) is supporting CRVS strengthening in seven countries. The countries selected for the project are India, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Indonesia, and Timor Leste. The objective of the project is to support the countries in improving CRVS systems through the development of strategic action plans with a special focus on death registration and causes of death systems, and following a holistic and systemic approach. The project will use the CRVS Improvement framework which is based on a process-centric approach.

The guiding principles for the project will be: a) country-led and country-owned process; b) well coordinated and consultative process; c) guided by international standards and concepts, and best practices; d) building a more pro-active system, as opposed to a passive system; and e) include innovations and scalable pilots on verbal autopsy based on civil registration records.
