CRVS system assessment tools

Rapid assessment of national CRVS systems

It can be used for both a baseline analysis and for subsequent occasional monitoring of progress as country interventions are implemented. The outcome of the assessment can be used to make the case to senior decision-makers for a more-comprehensive analysis to be conducted.

Prior to its finalisation and release, the tool was extensively peer-reviewed by technical experts and field-tested in three countries. It is available as text at:

A spreadsheet version to facilitate the compilation and automated calculation of data can also be found at:

The rapid-assessment tool should be seen as a pre-cursor to the comprehsive assessment, which is more comprehensive.
