The Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems and UNCEA are pleased to announce the launch of our new CRVS and COVID-19 series highlighting the impact of COVID-19 on CRVS systems and documenting good and innovative practices for facilitating the continuous and universal registration of vital events in Africa. These innovative approaches are mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on the performance of civil registration systems and are supporting the generation of data for health surveillance during a health crisis. The purpose is to inspire and guide efforts to enhance the functioning of CRVS systems during emergencies.
