Regional Meeting on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics

The end of February will see the Pacific Community host a regional meeting on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics in the Pacific Islands focussing on standards, best practice and lessons learnt. The meeting is being held in partnership with Brisbane Accord Group Partners (with funding specifically from UNICEF, WHO and ESCAP) and the United Nations Statistics Division. The meeting will bring together participants from the Statistics, Health, and National Registry sectors and is an important opportunity for countries and partners to share experiences to date under the Pacific Vital Statistics Action Plan and to build on regional commitments to improving CRVS.
