Fifth edition of More than Numbers is out!

More than Numbers is the e-newsletter that keeps you up-to-date on what is happening in the civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) arm of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative (D4H) by the University of Melbourne.

From Morocco to Myanmar, if you are working within the D4H Initiative, you can sense the enthusiasm in countries to get maximum benefit from the technical support we have been providing for over three years to improve their CRVS systems to produce better data for health policy. 

In this edition:

  • A new data analysis and interpretation tool 
  • How to use SmartVA with one device
  • Colombia's innovation to report community events
  • A new video with health information system change expert Professor Don de Savigny guides us on what it means to implement process mapping with countries. 
  • Spotlight on the in-country work in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Ecuador and Peru.
  • Four of the D4H fellows share how they will take the lessons learned from their time at the University of Melbourne back to their countries.

As always, we highlight new resources developed by the University of Melbourne that document the work done as part of D4H, as well as improve understanding of the best-practice ways to implement CRVS strengthening activities in their country.

Lastly, we have listened to your feedback and created a 'frequently asked questions' page to give visitors of the CRVS Knowledge Gateway a simple way to find the information they need. You can view the page  here .
