Policy Brief: How does the health sector accelerate improvements in civil registration and vital statistics?

The document contains a description, drawing upon guidance issued by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund, of the proactive role that the health sector can play in ensuring that births and deaths are officially registered in national
civil registration systems. The description also covers the role of the health sector and of civil registration and vital statistics not only in tracking specific diseases, such as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), but also in ongoing efforts to track all-cause mortality and causes of death.
