Health Focus

  • CRVS System

    Around 40 million births (one-third of the world’s annual total) are not registered and 40 million deaths (two-third of the world’s annual total) globally are either not registered or incorrectly certified. Due to deficient Civil Registry and Vital Statistics (CRVS) systems, individuals in low- and middle income countries are denied basic health coverage. The continued cost of negligence is tremendously detracting from both individual and economic development.

    IHS is working on digitizing CRVS systems to strengthen the availability, timeliness and quality of birth and Cause of Death (COD) data.
