June 14, 2023 (Honolulu, HI) – Epidemiologists, vital statistic registrars, and health information specialists from the U.S.-Affiliated Pacific Islands join us in Honolulu this week for the Regional Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Technical Working Group meeting! In most countries, a civil registration system is used to record statistics on vital events, such as births, deaths, marriages, divorces, and fetal deaths. A well-functioning CRVS system generates essential statistics on population dynamics and health indicators. It also permits understanding the prevalence, distribution, and causes of mortality and identifying health inequalities and priorities.
