In this Series paper, the authors examine whether well functioning civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems are associated with improved population health outcomes. They present a conceptual model connecting CRVS to wellbeing, and describe an ecological association between CRVS and health outcomes. The conceptual model posits that the legal identity that civil registration provides to individuals is key to access entitlements and services. Vital statistics produced by CRVS systems provide essential information for public health policy and prevention.
This report analyzes the gendered impacts of inadequacies in marriage and divorce registration in six countries on the African continent. The six countries reviewed are Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda, Burkina Faso and Morocco, representing the different types of legal systems prominent on the continent. A review of each of these legal systems reveals a common thread: each legal system fails to adequately recognize various marriages embraced by the population and in doing so, denies women in these marriages important rights.
- New partnership between ESCAP and Data2x : Promoting the gender dimension in national and regional CRVS efforts
Data2X, named for the power women have to multiply progress in their societies, aims to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment through improved data collection and analysis that can provide a solid evidence-base to guide development policy. To provide basic information for a Data2X roadmap, this report maps gender data gaps in developing countries across five domains of women’s empowerment: (1) health, (2) education, (3) economic opportunities, (4) political participation, and (5) human security.
