Romesh Silva, Technical Specialist, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) discusses three priorities that need to be addressed in the field of CRVS systems and gender.
He points to a need for data which is disaggregated by sex at the very least. He highlights how this will advance understanding of the key areas which require focus as a scale-up plans continue. He also stresses the need for more analytical work to understand the interdependence of data registration across different vital events, such as births, deaths, and marriages.
