'Fiji is the first country, to our knowledge, to embark upon an in-depth quantitative inequality assessment, examining differentials by sex, age, ethnicity, and mother’s marital status. Information obtained from this assessment will be used to inform future research and policy interventions to bridge gaps in registration between different population groups in the country. This assessment primarily drew upon direct calculations of both registered and estimated births and deaths sourced from the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) records and census enumeration data provided by The Fiji Bureau of Statistics (FBoS). Birth registration completeness disaggregated by various socioeconomic characteristics as outlined in the 2021 Fiji Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), was also consulted.'
