UN DESA in cooperation with the Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO-EMRO) is organizing a Workshop on the Operation of Civil Registration, Vital Statistics and Identity Management Systems and the Production of Vital Statistics Reports for the Eastern Mediterranean Region Countries. The workshop will take place in Casablanca, Morocco, from 19 to 23 March 2018.

The workshop aims to increase the knowledge and skills of participating statisticians, civil registration officials, identity management officials and health officials in implementing the Principles and Recommendations for a Vital Statistics System, as well as to give participants hands-on technical support to produce vital statistics reports from civil registration records and improve their capacity to identify obstacles and challenges for achieving complete coverage of their systems.

The workshop will also provide a forum for exchange of national experiences in evaluating vital statistics and discussing the capacity of participating countries to deliver quality national vital statistics for international compilation and dissemination. Current practices for setting up a holistic framework that encompasses Civil Registration, Vital Statistics and Identity Management Systems will be reviewed.
