Myanmar has made great progress in strengthening civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS). In order to maximise the impact of CRVS on improved population health and the prevention of premature death and disability, the government requires accurate, reliable, timely, and complete information on birth and death registration, including data on cause of death (COD).
Currently, the government estimates that death registration is 50% complete and that approximately 75% of registered deaths have usable COD information. Given this, Myanmar aims to increase the registration of deaths; improve the quality of cause of death data; and enhance general understanding of the importance of civil registration. Overall, these activities will help produce high-quality information to inform policy and planning.
This short video is an overview of CRVS in the country, and highlights videos that provide a more in-depth understanding of their system and improvements as part of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative.
All of the videos are in English or Burmese with English subtitles. Filmed in July 2018 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.
