We are excited to launch our remote fellowship program, which supports Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) professionals from low and middle-income countries to work remotely on CRVS projects with support, resources and skills development from experts at the University of Melbourne.
Applicants should be from low-to-middle income countries and have established working relationships with one or more of the institutions responsible for the operation and development of their country’s CRVS system.
This can include, for example, staff working in a government institution that is part (or potentially part) of the CRVS system, or people from a research institution (e.g. school of public health, medical college) who collaborate closely with stakeholders responsible for the CRVS system.
The in-depth participatory learning and knowledge sharing undoubtedly enhanced our professional capacity and supported an improvement in human resource capacity within our CRVS sector. The knowledge and skills learnt will be highly useful for the ongoing CRVS strengthening efforts.
