Where you live, how much you earn, your gender or the color of your skin shouldn’t drive your health. At Vital Strategies, we’re reimagining public health, working for a world where everyone, everywhere is protected by a strong public health system.

Civil Registration and Vital Statistics

Count every life. That is the principle behind Vital Strategies’ Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Program, which collaborates with governments to ensure high-quality data about life and death are available to policy makers. CRVS systems are the foundation of good governance, and are key to policy, planning and monitoring of international commitments like the Sustainable Development Goals. For individuals, the registration of vital events offers rights, protections, and access to services.
