Civil registration and vital statistics and the Pacific Vital Statistics Action Plan

The Pacific Vital Statistics Action Plan (PVSAP) was developed by the Brisbane Accord Group (BAG), a group of development partners, with the aim of improving vital statistics in the Pacific region, and improving coordination between development partners.  The PVSAP sits under the Ten Year Pacific Statistics Strategy (2011-2020) to ensure CRVS is fully incorporated into regional strategic statistical priorities.

This booklet details the importance of birth, death and cause-of-death statistics, and how they can be used in making evidence-based decisions for health and development.  It also describes some of the significant progress made in the region over the past few years, and the actions needed to continue this good work.
