We support global efforts to strengthen civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems. We do so by collaborating with organizations and experts to facilitate access to information and expertise, including global standards, tools, research evidence, and good practice.
Our purpose? To make knowledge readily available for countries aiming to develop, strengthen, and scale-up their national civil registration system and improve their vital statistics reporting.

Our knowledge brief series aims to uncover gender bias and barriers, share case studies and emerging findings, and recommend priority areas and solutions to improve vital event registration for women and girls.
In Africa alone, 98 million children are unregistered.
This paper is one of twelve in a knowledge brief series on gender and CRVS that aims to uncover gender bias and barriers, share case studies and emerging findings, and recommend priority areas and solutions.
