Rwanda Civil Registration and Vital Statitics (CRVS) systems

The comprehensive assessment of Rwanda Civil Registration and Vital Statitics (CRVS) is a direct response to the declaration of the Second Conference of African Ministers Responsible for Civil Registration in September 2012. The Conference urged all African countries to undertake in-depth assessment of the state of their national civil registration systems and develop a strategic and action plans for improving CRVS.

It is in line with two of the strategic objectives of the Second Rwanda National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS2) that envisages bringing about a profound change in the vital statistics collected from civil registration, namely: (i) Strengthening of civil registration system, administrative records, surveys and other sources of data; and ((ii) improving resources mobilization and building strategic partnerships.
