Overview

Digital birth registration in Pakistan technical analysis study: Strengthening CRVS in Pakistan through the appropriate use of digital technologies

Pakistan has an average birth registration rate of 27% and an unknown death registration rate. Strengthening Pakistan’s Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system and achieving universal coverage is critical so that individuals can have a legal identity to ensure access to public services, social protection and human rights, while statistical information and health indicators can be used for policy planning, implementation and monitoring.    

This report analyses the strengths and weaknesses of the current CRVS system in Pakistan and proposes  how digital technologies can be used to increase registration rates, provide legal documentation of all vital events, and produce vital statistics that are complete and accurate.
