Helping you create change
It’s time to start counting everyone.
This Gateway supports countries to plan and implement activities designed to strengthen their CRVS system. The resources you need are now at your fingertips.
New: CRVS costing and sampling tools
Countries can benefit from new tools that assist in determining the costs of implementing CRVS systems, and provide guidance and calculation on how large verbal autopsy sampling sizes should be in order to ensure the results are representative of the country.
Have you been trained on ANACONDA? Our new template assists countries to write reports about the quality of mortality and cause of death data in their countries or a sub-region using ANACONDA to calculate indicators and produce charts and tables.
We wrap up our collective achievements over the past four years of the initiative, share accounts of verbal autopsy work in the field, in-depth interviews with our colleagues in Brazil, Colombia and Myanmar and talk to our Fellows about what they are excited to learn.

Sri Lankan CRVS experts weigh in on how the country is improving their system as part of the Data for Health Initiative.
